A comedy series about an astronomer..?
Yes, you read that right. This year I failed to escape the dreaded fresher's flu so I'm sat drinking tea and eating oranges in front of the TV. I am actually doing some work, writing some observing proposals for the next VLA deadline which is Monday. Anyway, between progams on BBC2 there was an advert for a new comedy series about an astronomer! The show is called "Supernova" and features Rob Brydon as an astronomer in the Australian outback at the (fictional) Royal Austrlian Observatory. There is a press release about it on the BBC's website so you can check that I'm not making it up.
