A Boxing Day special with Brian Cox and Brian Eno

whoever Brian Cox is... ehmm, and I think Boxing Day is the 26th?

I'm assuming it's the same Brian Cox that used to be a musician with D-Ream and is now the cherubic face of BBC Scientific programmes; he's quite an engaging fellow - a professor with the knack of explaining complicated things in a simple and entertaining manner.

He recently did a "talk" tour in America and one of Teresa's friends went to see him.

So, him and Eno should be an interesting cerebral match.

Hi Rendezvous,

thank you! That sounds quite interesting, indeed. And meanwhile I've also found some interesting explanations as to why the day after Christmas is called Boxing Day in the UK...

You're welcome Lonely Dreamer.

Strange coincidence that Teresa asked me a while ago about Boxing Day and I sent her a similar explanation to the examples in the article....although in my castle I spend the day throwing boxfuls of frozen manure from my stables at my shoemaker and cumerbund maitre d.
:lol:
