Get ready for a dose of the arts as we delve into everything that's on show! Duane learns how to be a true diva and Scott becomes a street performer.
Steve's hot on the trail of Africa's big cats. He dons a camouflage suit to beat a leopard at its own game and catches up with a pride of lions.
There's an emphasis on destructive forces as street science guru Tim Shaw demonstrates the crushing power of a steel blade, the force of a shotgun, and explosive action of a man-made lightning bolt, all in the name of science. (S.2 Ep.3)
Steve and his crew are taking on the arid landscapes of Namibia in southern Africa. It's an extreme environment of sandy dunes and hot temperatures in which he'll need a few tricks up his sleeve to uncover his deadly quarry.
Steve and the team are headed back to South Africa on the search for more contenders for the Deadly 60. In this episode we find black tip reef sharks, African killer Bees, ragged tooth sharks and the black eagle.
We're kicking it with the pros today, from musical stars to elite netballers and incredible wildlife rescue workers.
Join us to explore everything underwater. Kellyn is on a dolphin feeding adventure and Duane helps out with an Alligator catch.
ORANGUTANS Orangutans are highly intelligent animals and keeping them mentally engaged and challenged is paramount for Melbourne zoo keepers and researchers. One project being trialled is using Xbox technology to enrich their experience and to encourage positive human-animal interactions. It's also hoped the technology could be adapted to give orangutans more control over their own environment, such as the temperature and lighting. STORMAGEDDON In the first week of June, four states were battered by a ferocious east coast low unusual in its size, damaging storm surge and intense rainfalls. Tasmania was under a deluge as an unprecedented seven rivers broke their banks in torrential downpours. Huge seas and an unusual wave direction carved out huge sections of waterfront properties and flooded low lying areas. Did warmer temperatures play a role? How are storm patterns changing across Australia and will we see more like this?
Steve travels to Mozambique in Africa and takes to the waters of the Indian Ocean in search of his next batch of contenders for the Deadly 60 - the whale shark, the marlin, the crown of thorns starfish and the Solifugae.
Deep in Panama's Darien Jungle rainforest Steve is on the search for one of the world's most elusive birds of prey, the magnificent harpy eagle. Steve also stumbles upon a racer snake and the bullet ant whose bite is painful.
Today, tsunamis kill thousands and wipe out everything in their path. Earthquakes destroy entire cities and towns and hurricanes tear across the landscape, leaving hundreds dead and thousands more displaced. Are such disasters capable of wiping out all traces of human existence - including art, architecture, and technology? Evidence suggests that it is not only possible but that it has happened over and over again. In recent years, scientists have found evidence of ancient and once thriving cultures thousands of years older than any believed possible. But what happened to them? How did they disappear? And could it all happen again? Is it possible that a cataclysmic event, such as a meteor, tsunami, or volcano, wiped out societies thousands of years ago? Could wars or epidemics have destroyed evidence of early cultures? Or did climate change cause millions of ancient people to disappear? Could we survive a similar event? Or is it possible that our present day civilisation could be washed away, leaving behind little to no evidence it existed?
Check out these sick wheels! Alex is in the driver's seat attempting to pull off some amazing stunts and Kellyn's playing wheelchair rugby.
Forensic Examination The Capital of Science: There's mystery afoot this week on Scope as we investigate the science around forensics! Dr Rob makes his way out to a crime scene to get the low down on police forensic investigations, things heat up when we look at the science behind how fires are started and we find out what happens when the chemical hazard team is called out to an emergency. Scope Forensics - Crime Scene: Dr Rob heads out to a burglary and teams up with Scenes of Crime Investigator Nicole Tadina from Queensland Police Service to try and catch the culprit! Scope Forensics - Police HQ: Dr Rob's adventure into forensic science continues as he heads over to Police Headquarters to decipher fingerprints with Neil Hayes from the Fingerprint Bureau and analyse blood samples with Kane Gordon from the Queensland Police Service's scientific branch. DIY Science - Chromatography: We join junior scientists Charlie and Alex from Scotch College as they use a technique known as chromatography to help solve a crime. Fire Forensics: Fires can be both deadly and destructive, that's why it's important for people like Daren Mallouk from the Fire Investigation Unit to figure out how and why they happen. Chemical Spill: Emergencies aren't just fires, floods and felonies. Dr Damien Reid from the Fire and Rescue Scientific Branch of the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services specialises in a different kind of emergency; chemical spills! All that and more on an action-packed episode of SCOPE; where the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
David Attenborough tells the intimate story of a leopard mother and her two cubs. The competition for food is tough, and if they are to survive they must learn a new skill - they must learn to fish.
Steve and the crew head back into the Costa Rican jungle where Steve comes face to face with some of his favourite deadly predators, snakes! He decides to look at three in detail and then choose just one for his deadly list.
This isn't your high school science class. Renegade engineer Tim Shaw takes science to the streets, creating a gas tank fireball and demonstrating how to stop a bullet moving at 1000km/h.
National Geographic cameras capture the remarkable celestial geometry of a total solar eclipse. The sun, moon and Earth come into such perfect alignment the moon completely blocks the sun's light.
Kamil meets with 10-year-old Arlen who finds the Praying Mantis in his back garden and teaches Kamil a karate trick or two.
