      Giuola – this is my dream! Unfortunately not. I would love to be a science presenter. The closest I have been is being on our local news programme northwest tonight – I’ve done that a couple of times. One of the photos on my profile (in the custard powder) is from that filming. It’s really good fun but hard to get your message across under such pressure! Do you like watching the science shows on TV?

      I’ve been on local telly a few times talking about general science, and I’ve recently done a programme for teachers TV on cosmology, but nothing too famous 🙂

      My research has never been on a ‘real’ TV programme though I did do an interview with Gabby Logan on Radio 5 Live a few months ago (on the subject of climate change and the behaviour of scientists).

      I am actually interested in making videos about science, perhaps not for TV but at least to put on YouTube. You can see some of my efforts on my web-site or at YouTube.

      My latest effort – made just yesterday (!) – is a trailer for the film I’d like to make if I win the competition…
