This morning at 05:30 the Open University broadcast its last TV program. I’ve fond memories of watching the programs in the mornings at the weekend when I was a kid. They are probably in no small part a reason why I ended up as a scientist.
I’d been planning to write more about this, but forgot. As it happens, the excellent Diamond Geezer has a fine post on the subject
(which I would link to, but in my tea-less state I can’t work out how to link to a specific blogspot post – it’s on his main page at the moment though) here (thanks dg).
