Black holes and Gravitational waves

If anyone would like to learn more about Julian's wonderful presentation at the Doty cup... The BBC have kindly put together a programme featuring his old lecturer to explain all what they can.

That was rubbish. First, it omitted the Loeb hypothesis (which is correct). Second, some of the graphics were incorrectly dramatised. Third, both presenters had bad hair.

Is that Loeb as in OW Loeb (wine merchants) who bottled some particularly fine ports in the first half of the 20th century?
