In this latest episode, the Unexpected duo, Professor James Daybell and Dr Sam Willis get all festive again and offer another Christmas special on the unexpected history of STARS! Which is all about celestial navigation, walking at night, being guided by the stars, telling the time, and predicting the weather; and a 7th-century Chinese star chart and political power in Ancient China! It’s also all about the history of Star Wars and the death star, and the symbolism of stars! Oh yes, and it’s all about the Christmas nativity and the Star of Bethlehem! Who knew!
