Need you guys to rummage for some New Scientific type documentaries/specials.
Hey guys,

You know science/tech and interesting go hand in hand with our content.

Documentaries and science specials,.. and similar content are quite abundant . The main thing that needs to be kept in mind is just keep in from the UK.

Things along the lines of the Brian Cox various series are what I'm after. Doesn't have to be him,.. but that sort of material.

New! The newer, the more relevant, and better quality (and able to find) -- I'd love someone like Stephen Fry doing a special on Genetics, Space, prodigious people, the human mind/brain,.. really anything scientific/tech oriented.

Basically interesting. (And History usually doesn't fit that mold lol.. but if someone can make History interesting and have replay value.. it's someone like Fry, or a comedian , or even a James May type but with a bit more personality. Smile )

Whatcha got?

I'll think about it, but all the Attenborough/BBC/NatGeo docs were amazing (and beautiful in HD)!

You know, Captain, every year of my life, I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and the best is to focus our attention on the good and the beautiful, if we just take the time to look at it.

You mean this Brian Cox. Right?

www.Qinteresting.com Originated on JTV in March of 2013 airing the British Panel Show QI (Quite Interesting) solely. As time went on the channel began to add more selective content from the UK. Qinteresting.com currently is compromised of QI, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Would I Lie to You, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Stephen Fry Specials, Peep Show, Mitchell and Webb, Big Fat Quiz of the Year, and more! This is most watched QI Stream - QI Live Stream - Quite Interesting Stream - on the web. The theme is Comedy with an Interesting and Clever twist!
