Television and Radio
I have been regularly invited on radio and television to comment on Einstein’s theories, black holes and the Big Bang, appearing in the UK on Radio 4, BBC1, BB2, Channel 4 and internationally on the National Geographic Channel, Arte, RTL, RTP, DW and RDP.
I appeared on Closer to Truth and you can see some excerpts here
Here are some animations I contributed to.
I have given public interviews and lectures all over the world. For example, I have spoken at the Serpentine Gallery (London), the Museum of Science and Modern Art Oxford (both in Oxford), the Royal Astronomical Society, the San Francisco Planetarium, the Indian Academy of Sciences (Hyderabad), Nelson Mandela’s alma mater, Fort Hare (South Africa), the island state of São Tomé and Principe, and Pioneerworks (New York).
