Preparing for an extended beach holiday, I tuned in to Radio National today to discover a replay of the brilliant Hindsight program Capturing Venus.

Created and first broadcast in the lead up to 2012’s Transit of Venus, the piece captures the history, sociology and science behind this rare astronomical event.  I was utterly enthralled – so much so that I turned on 3 radios throughout the house so I didn’t miss a minute as I wandered from room to room tidying, sorting and packing.

It’s available as a podcast – perfect for summer listening.
