Another chance to see this personal view by J. Bronowski 10: World within World
To see the world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower;
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour
(WILLIAM BLAKE )
From the echoing vaults of a great Polish salt-mine DR BRONOWSKI embarks on the most fantastic journey of the 20th century, to the hidden world inside the atom. He tells the story of the men and ideas that gave concrete expression to the invisible, intangible structure that lies beneath all matter. The sunny quiet of Niels Bohr 's garden, the clamour of great reactors and the silence of a Vienna cemetery are stopping points on the journey that ends in the fires of a neutron star, deep in space.

In 1066, on the eve of the Battle of Hastings, a comet appeared. Seeing it, William the Conqueror is reported to have told his soldiers 'that is a bad omen for the English' and went on to defeat them. The death of Julius Caesar , the ravages of Attila the Hun, the fall of Constantinople were all linked with the sightings of comets.
Down the centuries, comets have been seen as the harbingers of doom and disaster. With the appearance of a new comet, Kohoutek, West German Television investigates the myth and sees how much of the old superstition still exists.
