BA: Wonders of the solar system

Wonders of the solar system
Bad Astronomy - 2010 March 07
Starting tonight on the BBC, a new series premiers called "Wonders of the Solar System". The host is some guy named Brian Cox. He’s a particle physicist! I don’t see the BBC hiring me to do a show on the Large Hadron Collider, so this doesn’t seem fair. And I’m a little concerned about how much Brian knows about the LHC, anyway.

Still, it looks cool. Here’s the trailer:

Wow, he never stops smiling. Is that how his face formed? :)

I think the BBC is vastly superior to the networks we have here in the US. Is it just because it's foreign and I only get the good tidbits over here that I like it?
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.
