Brian Cox has, for many, become the face of science storytelling, and while his musical background gives him his edge, it is his talent for explanation that gives him his credentials.
Here, as part of an outreach programme by the University of Manchester, he gives a lecture to a room full of UK school kids. Cox, however, doesn’t dumb down for a younger audience, giving them credit for being able to understand big concepts once they are explained with enthused and coherent argument.
He makes the big, important, questions interesting and exciting, and this is the perfect refresher course for anyone, of any age, who is interested in knowing how we came to know what we know.
