Well, that seemed to be a pretty sensible walk-through of the top ten
existential risks (as written about by Nick and Anders). It included a
lot of excerpts from Hollywood disaster films for added entertainment
The comments from Nick Bostrom were quite brief, as other scientists
were commenting as well. But the program got all the existential risks
ideas over clearly to a mass TV audience.
It is available online for 29 days.
