Film Screenings, Something A Little Different

Alien is awesome, but have you ever wondered about the science involved behind Alien? Me neither until now and now I"m a little obsessed with the idea so we've got a scientist and a couple of comedians to give you a very special science commentary of 1979's Alien:

The Scientist: Adam Rutherford
Adam has his own Wikipedia page, that’s how much of a big deal he is. He contributes to the Guardian, hosts BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science program, and is the author of ‘Creation’ – I mean he’s written a book about the origins of life, not that he’s actually God (but he is pretty close).

The Comedian: Richard Sandling
Richard won So You Think You’re Funny in 2007 and has successfully been funny ever since, hosting the ‘Perfect Movie’ comedy night and appearing on the Peep Show, Miranda and Robin Ince’s London Book Club and Gifted Children shows.

Hosted by Helen Arney
Helen is one third of Festival of the Spoken Nerd, presenter for "You Have Been Warned" over on the Discovery Channel and BBC2’s Coast, and in charge of making sure nothing catches on fire and the Science Flicktion screenings. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
