"Curious Cases of Rutherford & Fry" is an excellent popular science series, with two very intelligent and personable presenters.

I also enjoy "The Life Scientific", which has another great presenter and some fascinating stories.

I agree with both Mike's post today.
 Tuesday's edition of "The Life Scientific" was particularly interesting. The scientist featured was an expert on chemical weapons who investigated their use and campaigned against them. Some of his university colleagues and superiors thought he should have been spending his time on scholarly pursuits.
I didn't take to science at school

"More or Less" is another programme worth hearing. It "explains and often debunks statistics" used in politics, headlines and everyday life.
