Stargazing LIVE is returning for a third three-night series! Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain will broadcast from the control room of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, interacting live with the audience and calling on a starry collection of the country’s finest astronomical minds to explore the majestic wonders of the cosmos.

As well as asking some of the big questions, there will be hints and tips for getting started in stargazing and advice on navigating your way around the skies.
