Schrodinger's Cat

An intelligent programme on quantum physics seems about as likely as quantum physics itself, but the first episode of "The Theory of Everything" on Channel 4 does seem quite promising. It's somewhat American-biased (unsurprising, since it's an import) and does seem to be able to describe at least some of the features without going into the mathematics - though I never know how much is understood by a viewer without the mathematical background knowledge to fill in the unstated gaps (how many copies of A Brief History of Time were actually read cover to cover?). Apparently the series is based on Brian Greene's The Elegant Universe, a book I bought in a sale in Waterstone's a while back, but haven't yet got round to reading, so I shall have some catching up to do ...
