'The Vega Science Trust has created a broadcast platform for the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) communities, so enabling them to communicate on all aspects of their fields of expertise using exciting Internet opportunities.'
'To date Vega has made more than 200 programmes, a third of which have been broadcast on the BBC2`s Learning Zone. These include the Royal Institution Discourse Lectures, Science Masterclasses, Reflections on Science series, Royal Society Public Lectures, archival interviews and discussions.'

'Vega`s videos aim to give us a fundamental understanding of principles of nature and the physical world. Outstanding scientists/communicators are directly involved with each video so that they can guide content of the programmes. Science is presented in a natural way as an intellectually challenging discipline and the videos fill the gap in TV coverage by presenting well-informed analyses on serious science-related ethical, economic, social, health and other issues.They reflect the overwhelmingly positive contribution that scientists have made to the well-being of society.'
