TV Guide w/c 12th November 2012

This week’s TV Guide from @MrsDrSarah (archive of TV Guides found here http://teachitbetter.wordpress.com/tag/tv-guide/) includes

I’m really glad I watched Dara O’Briain’s Science Club last week, there was loads of stuff for GCSE biology and the introduction to DNA at the start will be a great resource – it’s still available on iPlayer and is included in the second half of this week’s guide.

Sarah’s Pick of the Week is the Science Cafe on Dietetics, and mine is Dara O’Briain’s Science Club which this week is all about Einstein.

If you have any suggestions for next week, let me know on twitter using the hashtag #sciteachlib and I’ll make sure they reach Sarah.
