BBC Big Science season

Posted in science, TV on October 20, 2012 by bytor


The BBC is currently showing a number of programmes under the banner of “Big Science” although they seem to be keeping very quiet about it. There is not even a separate page on their website collecting all the details, and promoting it, although if you go to any one of the individual programmes pages, it will try and direct you to the others.

Anyway here is the list (If I have missed any please let me know). Most are still on iPlayer or are upcoming
