Galileo

About this programme

2/5. Profile of 16th-century Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, whose observations through a telescope of his own invention led him to defend the Copernican thesis that Earth orbited the sun instead of vice versa - a view that got him into trouble with the Inquisition. Presented by Allan Chapman.
