Brian Cox, Horizon: What Time Is It?
TX: December 2, BBC2, 9pm
The teaser is out.
NOTE: UPDATES TO THE POST ARE BELOW
Brian is off filming a new Horizon at the moment. His last one about Gravity was rather popular (thanks for watching, everyone!) and was very well received indeed. They asked him if he’d do another one. This one is about Time- humans’ concepts of it and what it actually means and, of course, relativity.
The first place they’ve been filming is in Mexico on Mayan pyramids. Here’s Brian with director, Paul Olding.
As you already know, the Maya ‘had very advanced concepts of mathematics, astronomy and Time.’ Hence why they are filming there. They will also be filming in Boston, Washington, D.C., San Diego and San Francisco (I think).
I was told there were ‘creepy crawlies’ in Mexico. Brian won’t cope well with that.
Here’s the first behind the scenes clip.
