Wikipedia wrote:The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures are a series of lectures on a single topic, which have been held at the Royal Institution in London each year since 1825, missing 1939-42 due to the Second World War. The lectures present scientific subjects to a general audience, including young people, in an informative and entertaining manner. Michael Faraday initiated the first Christmas Lecture series in 1825. This came at a time when organised education for young people was scarce. Faraday presented a total of nineteen series in all.

I used to watch these on telly when I was little and they were amazing and now I watch them on telly with my little boy and they are still amazing.

In case you missed that: there was a ROBOT ORCHESTRA and it PLAYED THE THEME FROM DOCTOR WHO.

That's what I want the singularity to be like (before the robots just kill us all).

Jo tried to show me this earlier to cheer up my pre back to work blues (which it sounds like exactly the thing that would) but technology failed her. I'm just getting in to bed now but I'll definitely check it out tomorrow.

I normally watch the Christmas lectures but nowadays our TV is under the control of an almost teenager who refuses to allow anything unless it features either Pokemon, Minecraft or minions so didn't get chance to see it this year.
