Interesting programme which includes the [url]Robert Taylor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Taylor_incident incident [/url] and Breakthrough Listen. Frank Drake explains the detail of how the Drake Equation was formulated over two days at Green Bank. He mentions that their guess was about 10,000 "Earths" in our galaxy of 100 billion stars. This suggests that 1 in 10 million stars should have a Earth? Sounds like a good place to start.

However SVT perhaps will broadcast it here.
They usually does that.
