Topic - Brian Cox's Wonders of Life

Coel Hellier - on 28 Jan 2013
What an excellent program! It was so great to see some actual science on prime-time BBC, presented with the attitude that people might actually be interested in science.

The usual David-Attenborough-style programs are visually great and well worth watching, but they take the attitude that science is far too hard for the public so let's avoid it and just show pretty pictures. A program driven by scientific ideas, and not shunted off to an obscure slot on BBC4, is such a refreshing change.

(Oh yeah, I also enjoyed the dissing of dualism and vitalism and the clear statement that life is the playing out of the laws of physics, rather than being anything mystical.)
