BBC Three’s first ever science series: a stunt-filled search for the answers to those FAQs you never got proper answers to, including ‘Can you survive being buried alive?’ ‘What do humans taste of?’ & ‘What actually is one giant leap on the moon?’
For this Greg was buried alive, frozen, shot, electrocuted, and even went under the knife… all in the name of science!
The series first TXed on BBC Three but has since been sold into 40+ countries around the world and regularly airs on BBC Worldwide outputs such as Hulu etc
Here’s the press blurb for each episode:
Daredevil science geek Greg Foot’s new stunt-filled series for BBC 3 kicks off with a tantalizing mix of those frequently asked questions you never got proper answers to. In just half an hour, Greg finds out what humans taste of, if the human race could cause an earthquake by jumping at the same time and most importantly (using a dead pig) whether or not a belly-flop could kill you. Along the way Greg is struck by lightning and ‘goes to the moon’ using helium balloons. And watch out for a cartoon vivisectionist with the inside track on genetics. It’s science – but not as you know it!
Self confessed science geek Greg Foot continues his adrenaline-fuelled science odyssey with a rigorously scientific look at whether or not you can survive in a falling lift, an eye-watering exposé of what makes chilies hot, and – using a dead pig – a remarkably enlightening explanation of what happens to our bodies when we die. Other secrets shared see Greg fire-walking and trying to survive an asteroid attack, while 70s throwback professor logic discovers the shortest route around the world. Whatever next?
