Wonders of the Universe
Thursday, 9.45pm, BBC Knowledge Here’s a real wonder of the universe: in 2008, physicist Brian Cox, narrator of this program about life, the universe and everything, was declared one of the sexiest men alive by People magazine. Must have been a lousy year. His profile wasn’t enhanced by an appearance that year on The Graham Norton Show in which he was revealed to be a bit of a bore. However, if you haven’t already seen it, Cox’s four-part exploration of the big questions, such as why are we here and what’s it all about, Alfie, is worth a gander.
