A NIGHT WITH THE STARS – Brian Cox

BBC2 UK

Professor Brian Cox goes unplugged in a specially recorded one-hour programme from the lecture theatre of the Royal Institution of Great Britain. In his own inimitable style, Brian takes an audience of famous faces and members of the public on a journey through some of the most challenging concepts in physics.

With the help of guests including Simon Pegg, Jim Al-Khalili, Sarah Millican, James May and Jonathan Ross, Brian shows how diamonds – the hardest material in nature – are made up of nothingness; how things can be in two places at once; why everything we see or touch in the Universe exists; and how a diamond in the heart of London is in communication with the largest diamond in the Cosmos.

Weaving stories around mind-bending physics, Brian will be guide, host and ring-master, asking questions we never thought we needed to ask.
