This third Vernon Bright title centres around the science of light. Vernon, banned from lighting the school play when he blows up the school orchestra, is allowed to video the performance. For Vernon this involves adapting the latest hi-tech video recorder - but now he finds he can video the future. For Dodgy Dave this is a chance to win the lottery, but all goes wrong as Vernon films the past instead. Then, to Vernon's horror, he finds a film of his own death! He's in despair, until he has to take the part of the corpse in the school play - and his shouts of joy at being alive ruin another school production.

Vernon Bright lives up to his name in more ways than one, and narrator Nigel Lambert is hilarious in his portrayal of the talented student. Vernon is in charge of the lights for the school performance of ROMEO AND JULIET. On the basis of past events, everyone, including the teacher/director, is nervous about what sort of light show Vernon has planned. Vernon explains complex scientific concepts simply and accurately to his less than bright friends and listeners. There are laughs aplenty as words such as "poleaxed" and "ghastly joviality" are used appropriately. A fun way to learn about science and Shakespeare.
