Dara Ó Briain: Secrets of Our Moon…

Comedian, writer, amateur astronomer and astrophotographer Dara Ó Briain, is to explore all aspects of the moon in a two-part series produced by BBC Studios Science Unit for Channel 5.

Dara Ó Briain:

“I love everything about space, but the moon in particular holds a special kind of magic.  It’s inspired countless myths and legends through human history but it’s a place full of genuine cutting-edge scientific mystery – and one which we are gearing up to visit again, over the next decade.  All of which made the offer to present this series irresistible.  I’ll be sharing everything you need to know about our closest celestial neighbour – as well as uncovering some real surprises along the way, including for me too!”

The moon has been the source of myths, legends and wonders across time.

In this series, Dara takes viewers on a journey to explore the ways in which the moon shapes just about everything – from who we are, to the world we live in.

Across the series Dara will be speaking to some of the world’s top lunar experts, scientists, researchers and geologists, as well as experts in other fields such as biology, to get a sense of how widely the moon influences every aspect of our lives.

Steve Crabtree, Executive Producer, BBC Studios Science Unit:

“Dara has a genuine love for astronomy, which I know will translate into great telly.  His infectious enthusiasm and longstanding passion for science and storytelling will enable him to explore the moon in a unique and entertaining way.  Delivering a brilliant documentary series, underpinned by real science and something I hope the Channel 5 audience will enjoy.”
