This lecture will use short clips from films and television programmes to illustrate how science fiction in the media sometimes gets science right but more often gets it wrong! Additionally the talk will show how difficult it is to make accurate predictions about the future and hence why most science-fiction films and television are extremely unrealistic. The lecture will also look at the portrayal of aliens in science-fiction, including that staple of many movies and television shows, “the alien invasion.”
