Your "Factlet," is most tantalising as I don't know what is a, "PBS episode
of the Nova series." >>
PBS is the U.S. Public Broadcasting System. Nova is a science-program
series, usually presented by WGBH in Boston, sometimes with help from others
- BBC, e.g.. I had hoped to watch it myself, but I'll have to get it on the
rerun, as it was up against "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" and, as we all know,
Buffy always wins.
