Bang Goes The Theory sees Dallas Campbell, Liz Bonnin, Jem Stansfield and Dr Yan Wong coming up with ingenious ways of explaining the latest developments in technology.
Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wars - all can trigger not just thousands of casualties and refugees, but also a worldwide humanitarian effort, with the roots for its success founded in science. At the Zaatari refugee camp, temporary home to around 20,000 Syrians, Maggie Philbin looks at the problems the humanitarian community faces when tackling a disaster, and how the lessons learned there might help closer to home. Liz Bonnin comes face to face with cholera, one of the most feared bacteria on the planet. And the team are joined by Dr Chris Van Tulleken, who makes Plumpy'nut, a simple peanut-based paste that has saved tens of thousands of famine victims.
Dallas Campbell, Liz Bonnin, Jem Stansfield and Dr Yan Wong explain how science shapes the world and put theories to the test with a range of imaginative experiments. They begin by focusing on gait recognition, vortex rings, genetic engineering and a novel way to cook an egg
