Episode menu

Gallery 1, Episode 6 - Meeting Six

With science writer John Gribbin, comedian Alan Davies and anchorite (that's a hermit) Martha Reeves.

Further details

Science writer John Gribbin tries to donate the Big Bang, although trying to work out how it is able to get inside the museum is just as hard as trying to explain the actual Big Bang.

Comedian and QI regular Alan Davies attempts to discuss Epping Forest, the home of Dick Turpin and several rare trees.

Anchorite and hermit Martha Reeves talks about silence... which seems somewhat counterproductive.


The full episode title is "Meeting Six - Rooms 22-24: The Big Bang, Epping Forest, Silence".
