This Monday sees Jim Al-Khalili explain how we’ve been able to discover so much about the universe through the manipulation of light in Light and Dark, and The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox and Robin Ince is back on the radio. Also we have a new episode of Horizon on Friday looking at Comet ISON which is currently making a show in the night sky.

Both Sarah and I are hoping that there will be more Chemistry programmes on our airwaves soon. I’ve been told that Professor Andrea Sella is “cooking up some Chem” for the Frontiers radio series soon. He’s also been on Business Daily for their Elements series (mp3 podcasts downloads here: A matter of life and phosphorous and Elemental business: Helium).

There are some video suggestions on the end of the guide this week, including a discourse by Professor Stephen Curry at the Royal Institution about the development of X-Ray crystallography.
