On Monday we went to a museum in London to film a t.v. docu drama for a South Korean T.V. Company. I was James Clerk Maxwell who was a scientist in the 19th century. Clerk Maxwell’s research into electromagnetic radiation led to the development of television, mobile phones, radio and infra-red telescopes. The largest astronomical telescope in the world, at Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii, is named in his honour. My favourite subject is astronomy and I found it all very interesting.

It was good fun and everyone was really nice even though I had to go through a translator to describe what I had to do. Everyone seemed very pleased so I hope I get to see it. Should be able to find it on the internet at some time.
