Astronomy program headed our way

This was picked up on the Sky at Night Magazine forum:

A while back we mentioned a programme called Beautiful Minds in the magazine. It’s finally getting an airing on 7 April! (It got put back in the schedules after we went to press). Here are the details (taken from radiotimes.com):

Beautiful Minds

Wednesday 07 April
9:00pm – 10:00pm
BBC4
1/3 – Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell

Professor Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell describes how she discovered pulsars, the by-products of supernova explosions which make life in the universe possible. She describes the moments of despair and jubilation as the discovery unfolded and her excitement as pulsars took the scientific world by storm. Reflecting on the nature of scientific discovery, she talks about the connections between religion and science and how she sees science as a search for understanding rather than as a quest for truth.
