Eclipse Live

Episode 5 of 8

Dara O Briain and Professor Brian Cox are joined by a team of experts for coverage of the solar eclipse, with Chris Hollins on the Faroe Islands and Liz Bonnin above the clouds.

Dara O Briain and Professor Brian Cox are joined by a team of reporters and experts as they host live coverage of the biggest astronomical event to be seen in Britain's skies this decade. To bring you the best possible views, Liz Bonnin beams live pictures of the eclipse from a specially equipped plane high above the clouds.

On the Faroe Islands, Watchdog's Chris Hollins is amongst thousands of people who have travelled from around the world to witness the jaw-dropping spectacle of a total eclipse. Stargazing's own solar scientist, Dr Lucie Green, joins Newsround's Leah Boleto and hundreds of children carrying out a nationwide experiment to see how the weather changes during the eclipse. And BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood tells us where in the country you are likely to get the best views.
