6 Degrees of Separation

Last night I attended a recording for a new panel show—6 Degrees of Separation. Professor Brian Cox is the host, with two teams of three scientists/comedians. They have 6 objects, people or ideas and have to find the scientific connections between each one.

There’s little information about this show—the BBC described the format as being “like Never Mind the Buzzcocks” (RIP). It’s still unclear if it was just a one off for a special week the BBC is doing, or something more. The recording was fun, the guests were entertaining and there were a lot of interesting things to learn.
