Brian and Robin's Infinite Inbox

Made for 4 Extra. Infinite Monkeys Brian Cox and Robin Ince attempt to answer some questions from listeners, tackling black holes, infinity and robot depression along the way.

Infinite Monkeys Brian Cox and Robin Ince delve into the postbag and open up the inbox for a programme specially recorded for BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Following their recent series of The Infinite Monkey Cage on Radio 4, Robin and Brian thought it was high time they answered some questions from you, the audience, which have poured in from around the UK and abroad. Penned by listeners as young as 10 and as old as 77, subjects include the nature of black holes, the mathematical abilities of chimpanzees, the suicidal tendencies of robots and complaints about infinity that will run and run.

But will they be able to answer perhaps the greatest question of all - is a strawberry dead?

Producer: Rami Tzabar.
