Elizabeth Brown

The episode of Antiques Roadtrip which includes a short item about Elizabeth Brown (Solar Observer and founding member (?) of the BAA) is scheduled to be shown on Tuesday at 16:30 on BBC 2.

Of course she was not "Britain's first female astronomer", but at least they are talking about her!

There is a little confusion in that it has said to be being shown on Monday.

However, I am sure it will be available on iPlayer for anyone not able to view it live.

Yes, Elizabeth was an Original Member and by December 1890 she had already been appointed Director of the Solar Section.
