image for Brian Cox And 'The Wonders Of The Universe:' Too Loud Man?
Too many men!

BBC bosses will be on tenterhooks tonight, waiting for the public's reaction to their re-edited version of Prof Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe.

They have adjusted the show to tone down the sound after complaints from viewers said the music and sound effects drowned out the commentary.

But Cox himself argued that producers shouldn't listen to what he described as the minority and that the programme was intended to be a film experience, not a lecture.

EIF News & Features commissioned PollsRUs to gauge local opinion before tonight's third episode aired.

Mrs Nuala Spools, at number 33, said: "Ooh no dear! I can't watch that - not with my brood. It's on at bedtime."

Molly Q, who has the upstairs flat across the road, said: "Wonders of the Universe? Don't make me laugh - it's all about men!

"Brian Cox? Just say his name... Cox... Cox - what else do you need? Penises... Penises... It's men, men, men.

"I tell you, if there were more female astronomers and particle physicists, we wouldn't be talking about... what were we talking about?

"Men! Bastards!"
