This week is a full week of science on TV so the guide runs two whole pages. I never get bored of seeing Sir David Attenborough so my 1st pick of the week is a repeat of the landmark series Life On Earth which is a real treat especially if you’ve never seen it. It is 13 episodes long and the first 5 are on at 4:15pm every weekday this week. Another pick is the CBBC series Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom. Last week they had a high octane look at the life and work of Archimedes and it is still on iPlayer and this week they’re looking at the rocket scientist Wernher von Braun – perfect for younger scientists. I’m also looking forward to Discovery on Monday evening about Quantum Biology (look out for a related web video of the week next week). The Genius of Invention was full of useful information and demo’s but the format felt a little forced. Still, this week’s is about the combustion engine and jet engine, so should be loads of science in there. Oh and Professor Brian Cox is on for 2 hours on Sunday with The Wonders of Life, about how our senses evolved, and a repeat of his star studded science lecture from Christmas 2011.
I’ve highlighted these and other picks in the table below.
