The Infinite Monkey Cage...

On Monday night Mark and I went to watch a recording of BBC Radio 4's The Infinite Monkey Cage being recorded at the Shaw Theatre in London's not so glitzy Euston.

I'm signed up the the BBC Tickets who offer free invitations to various BBC events. Most are done on a ballot and so getting tickets to the more popular ones is pretty hit and miss. This time I was lucky.

Atheist beef-cake Professor Brian Cox and and atheist cupcake Robin Ince run The Infinite Monkey Cage show and it takes a sideways glance (and occasionally head-on) at science. This week they were talking about the oceans and they had Dave Gorman joining the panel along with a biologist and a geologist. It was fascinating stuff. And funny too.

    How early did you arrive? Was there a long queue?

  2. Yes. Huge. Get there at least an hour before doors open. At least.

  4. Not many, no. But we were near the front.
