Lost Horizons: The Big Bang
On: BBC 4
Original Air Date: Thursday 4th September 2008
To coincide with the switch-on on Wednesday of the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest particle accelerator complex, Professor Jim Al Khalili delves into over 50 years of the BBC science archive to tell the story behind the emergence of one of the greatest theories of modern science, the Big Bang. Using curious horn-shaped antennas, U-2 spy planes, satellites and particle accelerators, scientists have pieced together the cosmological jigsaw, and this documentary charts the evidence for a universe created from nothing.
