About This Show

Picking up the story in “Holst” five years later, “Payne” follows one of Holst’s most brilliant students – Cecilia Payne – as she begins her groundbreaking work in astronomy at Harvard Observatory in 1922. Following the course of her adult life, “Payne” is the story of one of England’s most under-appreciated scientific pioneers, telling a bold-hearted romance about one woman’s love affair with the stars.
