Torchwood @ CERN – the BBC’s September 10th broadcast from Switzerland’s CERN lab will feature a starring role from John Barrowman, thanks to a radio episode of Torchwood and an interview by Barrowman with physicist Brian Cox.
The worryingly-titled Big Bang Day will feature coverage of CERN physicists in their attempts to recreate the conditions of the Big Bang aftermath, and be presided over by presenter Andrew Marr (Aliens of London) exclusively on Radio 4.
Also appearing to chat with Dr Brian Cox will be particle physics nutters Alan Alda, Eddie Izzard and comic actor Ben Miller.
"This will be one of the greatest scientific experiments, as well as the most expensive, ever conducted on Earth, which – fingers crossed – will reveal truths about existence guessed at but never demonstrated.
"The eyes of the thinking world will be watching CERN, which is why it will be such a privilege to report there for Radio 4′s special day."
