Gallery 12, Episode 4 - Meeting Seventy-One
Shindu Vee, a former investment bank with degrees from Oxford, Chicago and Delhi, who later became a stand-up comic after a unfunny friend decided to give it a go, offers the Danish concept of hygge, the concept of coziness. It involves candels, a little drink, and freezing cold darkness - thus you really can't have it in Britain or Shindu's native India.
Sir Paul Nurse, Nobel prize winning geneticist, an ex-Socialist Worker salesman, and a man who has failed French O-Level six times, gives the Museum the Large Hadron Collider - the biggest, most complex scientific machine ever built. It may explain what dark matter and dark energy is - if they can clear away the dead weasels from it.
Rowan Pelling, the former editor of the Erotic Review, the current editor of The Amorist, and who once sent two reporters to cover an orgy in Hemel Hempstead, provides a saucy limerick. She believes it is a fun form of poetry, and deals with the subjects of sex in a very British way.
