Science on Screen not testing enough?

Is there enough science mixed in with the entertainment, or does the drive to reach a big audience mean demanding intellectual ideas are relegated to the dark corners of BBC 4?


Science and technology make popular viewing, even beyond the specialist digital channels that thrive on Brainiac and How it’s Made. The Open University has abandoned beard-ridden late-night lectures for popular programmes like Coast and Electric Dreams. And Tomorrow’s World has finally found a prime time successor in Bang Goes the Theory. But is there enough science mixed in with the entertainment, or does the drive to reach a big audience mean demanding intellectual ideas are relegated to the dark corners of BBC 4?
