Science and Comedians

Robin Ince visits the archives of one of his all-time science heroes and physicist Brian Cox tackles his personal mission to put science back at the heart of the political agenda.

Former cosmologist Dara O'Briain and Dr Alice Roberts join physicist Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince for a witty, irreverant and unashamedly rational look at the world according to science. They'll be asking why so many comedians seem to start life as scientists, and begin their quest to put science at the heart of popular culture.
