When Southbank Centre was the Infinite Monkey Cage - science fact v science fiction

What happened when BBC Radio 4 brought Brian Cox and Robin Ince and their Infinite Monkey Cage to See Further: The Festival of Science + Arts?

They tempted Jonathan Ross, graphic novelist Alan Moore and string theorist Brian Greene into their cage (which looked suspiciously like Purcell Room) for a chat about science, science fiction and giant chickens.

Listen to the broadcast using BBC iPlayer or download the podcast (only available until Monday)

The BBC ran an online chat during the broadcast on Monday - replay the chat on the BBC blog.
