Flirtation, foxes and fictional chemistry 3 January 2010

We discuss the geeky vibe in the films '2010' and 'Sherlock Holmes', wonder why scientists wear glasses and engineers don't, and hear how one professor outsmarted a very foxy criminal. Also, we use the latest technology to find a mate and to experiment on chocolate, and catch up on all the other latest news from Fiction Lab. Join Jenny and Richard in London for these stories and more from the world of science in art, literature and popular culture!
