Journeys Through Space & Time

The Royal Institution
Drawn from the Royal Institution’s archive, highlights and themes from 13 of the most fascinating Christmas lectures given over the last 200 years. A captivating exploration of space and time, looking at what we thought we knew then, and what has been discovered since. Includes ‘The Sun, the Moon and the Planets’ from 1881, ‘Astronomy in our Daily Life’ from 1944, ‘Time Machines’ from 1969, ‘The Cosmic Onion’, from 1993, through to ‘How to Survive in Space’ from 2015. Begun at the Royal Institution in 1825 by Michael Faraday, the Christmas Lectures have been broadcast on television since the 1960s and have formed part of the British Christmas tradition for generations. First devised to attract young people to the magic of science through spectacular demonstrations, they are now watched by millions of people around the world every year. With a foreword by ESA astronaut Tim Peake.
