- Is Brian Cox the new David Attenborough ?
atters certainly thinks soPosted 5 years agomechmonkeyMember
I find Brian Cox engaging and hats off to anyone who can make quantum physics accessible to me. He seems to love what he does and it comes across when he’s on camera.
He isn’t quite an Attenborough yet though. Could listen to his voice all day, and some of his pioneering explorations and early filming of things like the Birds of Paradise(albeit in b+w) was truly groundbreaking.Posted 5 years agobwaarpMember
Brain Cox’s smile creeps me out and makes me want to lamp him.
Secondly, his softly spoken voice winds me up.
Thirdly, I have to switch channel when he starts talking about Biology because his smiling coupled with the fact that he’s talking about my subject instead of physics makes me rage out.
Fourthly, I think this is all down to the fact that he reminds me of my old best school mate….who turned out to be a wet fart with no sense of loyalty – who’s such a boy that he married a woman of 33 at the age of 23 because he likes being told what to do.

i saw his quantum physics lecture at the royal institute, i found it entertaining and informative.
(i’ve read about the double-slit experiment, but never really understood how it demonstrates that particles behave as waves – now i don’t understand why i didn’t understand it, he made it very simple for me)
but i didn’t mind terribly that he had left the guy in charge of lining up the lens-flare at home…Posted 5 years ago
