In the summer of 2008, Heather wrote and presented an iconic 30-part series for BBC Radio 4 on the history of astronomy, Cosmic Quest.
The series aired every weekday for six weeks, with a one-hour Omnibus edition on Friday evenings.
Cosmic Quest was about more than science. The history of astronomy is a reflection of our culture: an insight into the development of mankind’s ideas – and ideals. In the series, Heather investigated the people who discovered our Universe, and the passions that drove them to probe ever outwards.
