When the BBC needs a media friendly scientist, they invariably turn to Professor Brian Cox – a photogenic physicist who fits the modern image of a science programme.

I have been informed by Nature Network that he will be presenting a show this Thursday on the topic of the month, The Moon.

Unfortunately, he has a tendency for devoting much of any TV show he appears in to driving around America and engaging in Rodin style sitting on a rock somewhere while ruminating on how he doesn’t understand things that I would expect a Professor to understand in his sleep.

As a consequence, I would not be entirely surprised if the show is a road trip to Florida, where he is blasted into space and ends up on the lunar surface sitting on his rock and moaning that he can’t understand how he got there.

I think I might go out and listen to a lecture about Werewolves instead.
