Set the recorders for 8.30pm tonight on ABC1 (repeated 12.30am tomorrow, Friday 19th if you forget) to see the BBC Wonders of Life – Episode 4 – Size Matters featuring QM’s Chris Lambkin with volunteers / associates Noel Starick and Tony Hillers. Prof Brian Cox presents this episode in Australia which explores how size determines the nature of life. Gravity and electromagnetism impact differently on types of life – from a single bacterium to a 110 metre tree, determining shape, movement and longevity.
Pay close attention at the 23 minute mark. http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/wonders-of-life/
