"Earth’s distant orb appeared the smallest light that twinkles in the heaven; whilst round the chariot’s way innumerable systems rolled and countless spheres diffused an ever-varying glory. It was a sight of wonder: some were hornèd like the crescent moon; some shed a mild and silver beam like Hesperus o'er the western sea; some dashed athwart with trains of flame, like worlds to death and ruin driven; some shone like suns, and as the chariot passed, eclipsed all other light." From "Queen Mab" by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1813)

Why Did This Have To Happen?

Why did this have to happen?

Suggested listening: "Steady The Buffs" by The Buff Medways


  1. OK - I'm going to be brave and say "to get to the other side."
    Is this where the sirens and flashing signs go off in a QI style??

  2. Love QI. Brilliant programme.

  3. It was a rhetorical question really but if anyone has any other suggestions I'd be glad to hear them.
