One More Moan…

Given the general lack of science programmes on TV, it’s a bit of a shame that when they do come along – they clash.
Last night Horizon returned with an edition entitled “Why Are Thin People Not Fat” (I’ll just leave that there…) while at the same time on BBC Four we had the first in a season of Darwin programmes – What Darwin Didn’t Know.
