Stargazing Live is a fun bit of TV for the astronomy fan. Dara Ó Briain and Brian Cox host this general interest astronomy based program.Though Dara is a comedian by trade he's also a big math and science guy. He's hosted a math based program called School Of Hard Sums that was interesting enough for me to sit though. Professor Brian Cox seems to turn up on a lot of British science programs. He works at the Large Hadron Collider when he isn't on TV.
I like both Dara and Brian, I find them interesting and they do a good job of making astronomy easy to understand. I like their enthusiasm for science and technology. There's plenty of stars and planets and other related material. The show travels to interesting astronomy sites, places you might have heard of, like Jodrell Bank, SALT in South Africa, and Mauna Kea in Hawaii that has 13 big telescopes set up. Brian and Dara are joined by guests like Jonathan Ross and Liz Bonnin.

Professor Brian Cox Lecture On The Universe
There are 4 more series and three specials. Here are poor copies of series 3 - 5, plus episodes of Wonders Of The Universe and Science Brittanica. There are many shows about serial killers there. I didn't bother with them myself. It's a subject that I'm lacking interest in. Sadly, the picture on many of these episodes is screwed up and the speed of the sound is a bit off. The sound can be fixed with VLC Player but not much can be done with the light purple tinted and cropped picture in it's frame. Why people upload these screwed up episodes I just don't understand.
Here's a nice looking and sounding program on Cern and the Higgs Boson by Professor Brian Cox. It's a bit dated, 2008, but I learned a bit.
Here's Brian on The Science Of Doctor Who.
