A few weeks ago I had the great privilege of hosting the BBC in our Visual Cognition lab. The BBC filmed a piece for the new science show, Bang! Goes the Theory (Mondays 7:30pm, BBC1). In the piece my colleague Pater Lamont, a psychologist and talented magician explained some of the psychological phenomenon utilised by magicians during close-up magic and then I demonstrated how these phenomenon can be investigated using eye tracking. The whole piece was filmed in and around Prof. John Henderson's Visual Cognition lab.
The piece will be broadcast on Monday 28th September BBC1 at 7:30pm (10:35pm, BBC1Wales). If you miss it you can view it on the BBC iPlayer (UK only). Catch it, I'm sure it will be fun and informative.
