Scots-educated science broadcaster Dr Hermione Cockburn has returned to work at the city tourist attraction that launched her career 15 years ago.
Dr Cockburn helped to establish the Edinburgh attraction's education service when it opened in 1999, shortly after graduating with a PhD in geomorphology from Edinburgh University.
She said: "My career has come full circle and I am returning to Dynamic Earth with much excitement...
"Education and science outreach are obviously my prime motivators and I have been blown away by the extent of the appetite there is for visitors to benefit from the interactive and very real learning experience that Dynamic Earth offers."
The local band covers a variety of hits, from the Killers to the Kinks and will be performing at the Lemon Tree this evening from 8pm.
They might even throw in a few festive numbers if you ask them nicely.
