Cox show gets Glastonbury slot

TV scientist Brian Cox is teaming up with singer-songwriter Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury this year.

The chart star turned physicist, who played keyboards for chart stars D:Ream, is bringing his Radio 4 show The Infinite Monkey Cage to the festival.

He will also be joined by co-host Robin Ince, comic Shappi Khorsandi and scientist Professor Tony Ryan at the event in the festival's cabaret marquee, which will be broadcast on Monday June 27 from 4.30pm.

The show, which won a Sony Award earlier this year, is described as a "witty, irreverent look at the world according to science".

BBC television coverage of the festival, which attracts thousands of music fans to Somerset every year, will include performances by headliners U2 and Coldplay as well as interviews, acoustic sets, and performances on the smaller stages.

Jan Younghusband, BBC commissioning editor for live music and events, said: "We are delighted once again to bring the BBC viewers and listeners to the heart of the action at the world's greatest popular music festival."

Three radio stations - 6 Music, Radio 1 and Radio 2 - will join together on Thursday June 23 to broadcast a special two-hour show introducing the festival and 6 Music will run extensive coverage throughout the event.
