The Infinite Monkey Cage
Brian Cox – Robin Ince – Alexandra Feachem: How to Build a Universe

The Infinite Monkey Cage, the legendary BBC Radio 4 programme, brings you this irreverent celebration of scientific marvels. Join us on a hectic leap through the grand and bizarre ideas conjured up by human imagination, from dark matter to consciousness via neutrinos and earthworms.

Professor Brian Cox and Robin Ince muse on multifaceted subjects involved in building a universe, with pearls of wisdom from leading scientists and comedians peppered throughout.

Covering billions of concepts and conundrums, they tackle everything from the Big Bang to parallel universes, fierce creatures to extraterrestrial life, brain science to artificial intelligence. How to Build a Universe is an illuminating and inspirational celebration of science – sometimes silly, sometimes astounding and very occasionally facetious.

The audience looked on him with smiling, vaguely patronising eyes, expecting a question about Martians or rainbows. 'Professor Cox, dark energy, will we ever know what dark energy is or is it merely a scientific idea invented as an alibi for an area of knowledge we can never truly understand?'
'We are having a bit of trouble with that. Next question please,' came the reply.
