Stardate with a comet

With the imminent encounter, of the Deep Impact probe with comet Tempel-1 tomorrow, here is a quick update of how to watch. The BBC/Open University will be broadcasting the occasional astronomy programme, Stardate, tomorrow morning on BBC1 (11.45 BST) and a summary programme in the evening on BBC2 (20.00 BST). It will be presented by Lucie Green and Brian Cox. Lucie Green presented last year's Stardate (transit of Venus) along with Adam Hart-Davis. Brian Cox was in the band D:REAM (famous for Things can only get better; the Labour party's election song in 1997) but left them to become a nuclear physicist at the University of Manchester!

Of course, you can also watch on the internet; see here and here for comprehensive list of links.
