According to someone's tweet, "'Understanding Asteroids & Comets' on Discovery Science at 6pm BST", so I guess this is a bit of a late announcement :D

For those of you who have never caught it, have a listen to Underbritishskies on Astronomy.fm done by a lovely group of people some of you will know from Twitter. It's on the third Sunday in the month (today) and repeated Monday and as a podcast the following Wednesday from iTunes. Well worth catching up with. More info here. ;)

BBC Radio4
Thursday 31st March 9.00pm
"The Biggest Radio On Earth"

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will scour the heavens, seeking distant galaxies and habitable planets. Astronomer Lucie Green looks at an ambitious international project that will have 3,000 radio telescopes probing the very edges of the universe, looking for signs of life.

Coming up on 12 April from 7pm BST, astronomy.fm (AFM Radio) are broadcasting a series of special programs on Yuri Gargarin. You can join me and Richie Jarvis on Under British Skies, at 7pm, when we talk to Sir Patrick Moore on his experience of speaking to Yuri on a couple of occations, including a visit to Manchester by Yuri in 1961. You can listen in by clicking the following link which leads to AFM Radio radio site, http://astronomy.fm/rad/. Hope you enjoy the program.

Quite often I see links for upcoming TV shows in the US which are atheist or skeptical in tone, but always get the "This video is not available in your region" message being UK based.

Is there a way around this?

Not being terribly fluent in TV - as in, I avoid the thing whenever I can - I don't have an answer, so this is just a post to say welcome to the zoo CoffeeLovingSkeptic! :)

Thanks for the welcome.

Without YouTube and other video clips I doubt I'd have become as well informed on science as I am now.
Reading is wonderful, and a primary source, as is talking, but seeing something in a visceral form can often help contextualise.

Watching things like Prof. Cox's Wonders of the Universe for example.

It's a shame we in the UK can't see much of the (rare) decent science programming in the US.

There's a series called Prophets of Science Fiction that I've been meaning to watch on the Science Channel.

They have episodes on authors like Arthur C Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Philip K. Dick, and Jules Verne.
Also 'Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman' haha, that guy could narrate anything.

Was a great message transported in the above:

Gale crater was definitely a habitable environment.
That is not saying there was life, but it could have existed in this life friendly environment.

The conference was recorded for those who have missed it and are interested (link further down).
I personally find them always very interesting.
