The Infinite Monkey Cage

Episode 1

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Anderson

Robin Ince and Brian Cox are not at home to hokum or superstition. The only things permitted in their science show are rationality, irreverence and wit.

The series returns with a promising opener on space exploration where the guests include actor Patrick Stewart and quantum-physicist-cum-comedian, Ben Miller.

About this programme

Physicist Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince return with the irreverent scientific magazine show, inviting former quantum physicist Ben Miller and Professor of Planetary Sciences Monica Grady to discuss space exploration with Patrick Stewart, one-time captain of Star Trek's USS Enterprise. The guests ask whether there is any need for humans to venture into space at all, and if unmanned missions are a cost-effective and efficient alternative.
