"Just off the canal and up a few steps near the Castlefield basin is the hugely impressive MOSI, Museum of Science and Industry. The thing is that the city has an amazing scientific pedigree: Joule, Bohr, Rutherford, Geiger - they all changed the world, and it all happened here in Manchester. It's not something we shout about, and we should."

Featuring Pauline Webb MOSI, Alistair Rawsthorne Professor of Computer Science, Manchester University
