New PBS show on multiverse

A new PBS Nova is coming:
The Fabric of the Cosmos
Acclaimed physicist Brian Greene reveals a mind-boggling reality beneath the surface of our everyday world. Airing November 2, 9, 16, and 23, 2011 on PBS...

Greene brings quantum mechanics to life in a nightclub like no other, where objects pop in and out of existence, and things over here can affect others over there, instantaneously and without anything crossing the space between them. ...

Hard as it is to swallow, cutting-edge theories are suggesting that our universe may not be the only universe. Instead, it may be just one of an infinite number of worlds that make up the multiverse. In this show, Brian Greene takes us on a tour of this brave new theory at the frontier of physics, explaining why scientists believe it's true and showing what some of these alternate realities might be like.
No one has even been able to produce an experiment where "things over here can affect others over there". The multiverse is more theology than physics. No real scientists believe that it's true.
