Parallel Lives, Parallel Universes

I'm hoping someday to be able to see this BBC documentary about "E"'s renowned physicist father, the creator of the many world's theory. How nice to think that for every action we take there are an infinite number of other actions being followed in parallel world's. Hey, if it influenced the creator's of Star Trek, you know it's an important theory.

Until I can see the film this article will have to do. I love it when E says:
Maybe Poetry plus Math equals what I do.
Interdisciplinary Genetics!

this documentary was shown tonight on the BBC... it was very intriguing watching a guy like Mark (who could himself be classed a genius) found out things about his father that he never knew or understood. It was very heart warming at times when Mark would make light of things like his father being such a recognised genius, and yet he himself has problems adding the tips up at the table. if anyone does have chance to watch this then i highly recommend it.
hopefully it will be repeated and i'll get the chance to record it.

Thanks for the comment. I hope to see it someday but am afraid it'll be via excerpts on youtube. Not sure how else to get this show. Bummer. If anybody gets a copy and would be willing to dup/share, let me know.

Hi, The 'Parllel Live, Parallel Universes' show is being repeated on BBC4 on 22nd January. If you can't get BBC4, it will probably be on BBC iPlayer for 7 days after that! I watched it first time round and will be watching again, as you can imagine the soundtrack is excellent!

Happy viewing!

I did finally get to see it but it was via 7 separate clips on YouTube. Unfortunately they have been taken down because of copyright issues. That's fair for them to do but they should then offer the documentary for purchase. BBC4 doesn't sell their shows though.
