Science IS fun!

I've just finished watching Jim Al-Khalili presenting the programme Chemistry: A Volatile History on BBC4. It was absolutely engrossing especially when covering what could become a very boring subject (think Open University 1970's). A great presenter... and why does his surname make me think Alkali?... hmmm...
I am so relieved that we in the UK have such an amazing organisation at the BBC when it comes to producing such stunning programming as this, after all, which commercial broadcasters and producers do you know who would even touch something like this with a bargepole?
Now, doubters, you think the licence fee isn't worth 4 channels and loads of national and local radio?
