‘Wonders of the Solar System’ started today in the US on the Science Channel. As my blog inevitably gets quite a lot of traffic after Brian’s been on TV, I thought I’d put up some extra photos and information. Brian’s Twitter Facebook group Website Twitpic (where you can see photos from the filming of both [...]
Electric Dreams starts on the 29th of September, 9pm on BBC4. Here are a few photos I took during filming… My desk (click for larger pics) with Star Wars, Mr T, Scully, Beetlejuice, Pee-Wee Herman figures, a PacMan table top game, a Little Professor and a guy made out of Lego by my son: One [...]
Brian’s in the middle of filming a big new series for the BBC. I decided to do this post now to gather up the info, images and video that are trickling out on the web. First, Brian is Twittering from everywhere he films. He’s also taking loads of photographs. Here are just a few. In [...]
I’ve not been blogging much lately as my life has gone crazy. Along with being pregnant, I’ve sold my house, am looking for a new place to rent (I have to move out by middle of Feb. gulp) and I’ve been filming a new tv programme for BBC4. Along with all of that, I’m still [...]
Last year I did a run-down of my year and thought I’d do the same again this year.
Honestly, this isn’t a blog just about Brian. That would be really weird… but… indulge me just a bit longer. Some of you may have seen the article about Brian in the Observer today. Now, you guys are intelligent and realise that not everything you read in a newspaper is accurate. This was made absolutely [...]
I am Dana Scully.
**UPDATE** 02.12.08 More on Professor Brian Cox here. Yep, Brian has been promoted to Professor. Weeeeee! We found out a few weeks ago, but couldn’t say anything until it had been announced at the University of Manchester. I’ve just re-designed his website, so make sure that if you link to it you use the words [...]
My son and I really enjoy beach-combing. We have spent hours at a time on beaches finding stones, shells, old pottery, worn glass… We have several carrier bags full of stuff we’ve found on beaches. One day, we’ll do something with it all. One of our very favourite places to go is the beach along [...]
Here are some more photos from our trip.
Another post I did for the Sunshine blog. In the beginning, it was hot. Really, really hot. You know how hot the inside of your oven is? Well, that is a relative walk in the park compared to how unfathomably hot it was at the Big Bang. It was so hot that Time, Space, Matter [...]
I’ve been going through some of the stuff I wrote for Sunshine. It’s been a while since I visited the site and was surprised and delighted by what I read. I wrote that? Here’s a short one which was pretty cool.
Well, we’re having an odd day. I needed to call my bank twice to get my bank card working… but it’s working now so that’s all good. Macy’s department store was having a big sale and with the dollar so weak and the visitors’ card which gives 11% off, I got quite a lot of [...]
Scientists in love. I just read Phil Plait’s I Cardiovascular You post and he linked to Ironic Sans’ Scientist Valentines post. They inspired me to do my own! Go on, you do one now!
I decided to try a bit of video…(about 6 minutes long) Watch Video
**UPDATE** More on Brian’s Horizon ‘Do You Know What Time It Is?’ here. Brian was on BBC Breakfast this morning to talk about his Horizon (tonight BBC2 9pm) ‘What On Earth Is Wrong With Gravity?“. Click the image to watch the video. Watch Video It’s been getting lots of good reviews. The only criticisms are [...]
