Are We Nearly Here Yet? Brighton Science Festival online

Richard Robinson tells the amazing story of the Universe, and how we fit into it.

This is a family Zoom show, exciting for kids of course, but surprisingly interesting to grown-ups, because it answers some of those niggling questions: goose bumps, viruses, wisdom teeth, yawning… what are they all about?  They are all reminders of your journey from the Big Bang to today.

A very elementary game.

Join Richard Cope and Richard Robinson in a game that reveals hidden secrets and crazy stories about the table of elements, how they were found, how they are used, and why.

Learning the table of elements is a tedious chore at school, but a gripping game at home if you learn by playing Top Trumps. You can know your elements before you’re seven years old! The way to victory is to know the facts.

In the accompanying stories told by the two Richards we find surprise, horror, struggle, magic, as humanity finds and tames the building blocks of the Universe over 10,000 years.


Richard Robinson is the director of the Brighton Science Festival. Richard Cope invented the game, designed the cards and researched the stories. Who do you think is going to win? The clash of the titans is on

ZOOM allows people to get together in the same room, without leaving home. It’s very easy to use. Up until the present crisis it was used for business conferences, but it has found a whole new use, bringing communities together, while keeping them apart, if you see what I mean.

ZOOM is free to download, and free to use, HERE
