The program follows the extraordinary discoveries of superconductivity and superfluidity and the attempt to produce a new form of matter, the Bose-Einstein condensate, that Albert Einstein predicted would exist within a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero. It is a race to reach the ultimate extreme: absolute zero, a place so cold that the physical world as we know it doesn't exist, where electricity flows without resistance, fluids defy gravity and the speed of light can be reduced to 38 miles per hour.
Amazon and Ebay - the two titans of modern e-commerce are each massively successful and each incredibly different. No two companies define the internet like they do. In astonishing journalistic coup, their founders of the web giants, Jeff Bezos and Pierre Omidyar tell the story of how their business grew form nothing to dominate the global economy and profoundly change the way we live our lives.
Tonight, Cathy and Luke get their first taste of the Cape at a house opening ceremony in Aurukun, get their feet wet hunting mudshells in a mosquito-infested swamp, launch a community-built catamaran to explore the wetlands and try not to get burnt to a cinder as they learn how to set fire to country
A fossil is a trace of a living thing left in rock. Fossils offer a three-part challenge - first to reconstruct the organism itself, then to reconstruct the world it lived in, then to understand its place in time and evolution.
A myths revisited special. Were Jamie and Adam responsible for a trombone travesty? Did the exploding hammers myth strike a low blow? As well as two other high-calibre myths.
Air-conditioning, refrigeration, and superconductivity are just some of the ways technology has put cold to use. But what is cold, how do you achieve it and how cold can it get? Absolute Zero explores these and other facets of the frigid in two one-hour programs.
This two-part series commemorates 200 years since the birth of Charles Darwin. It combines dramatic reconstruction of Darwin's voyage around the globe onboard The Beagle, from 1831 to 1836 (which provided his scientific observations culminating in the publication of the Theory of Evolution in 1859), with contemporary scientific analysis of his findings that both prove and disprove his understanding of evolutionary theory. The series sets out to show that Darwin's extraordinary precision and methodology remain a shining example for today's researchers in the fields of biology, geology and zoology.
In a few short years a new and unique way of finding information revolutionised the web and in the process created one of the largest companies in the US - Google. But the story of how this happened is riddled with brilliant insight, missed opportunities and a whole new way of thinking about business.
In a lifetime, the average person will take 58 holidays, meet 1700 friends and acquaintances, read 2100 books and watch 5800 films. Without memory, these events would remain just that - a series of unrelated events or things. But through memory, these events become autobiographical, transforming them into events which happened to me. How Does Your Memory Work? is a documentary exploring the staggering complexity of memory, something most of us take for granted.
Geology as science begins with the industrial revolution in England. For the first time rock strata are studied and compared and an amazing conclusion is drawn. Earth is unbelievably old.

This is the story of an epic battle between America's mightiest corporation and a small group of computer geeks who'd created a revolutionary technology. It's a battle that would involve the US government, create billions of dollars of wealth and change all our lives. Welcome to the browser wars.
No matter how terrible they look from the outside, in almost every disaster, be it a plane crash, a ferry disaster or a terrorist attack, someone usually gets out alive. And while it's impossible to be prepared for every eventuality, scientists are discovering that there are things we can all do to increase our chances of survival should the worst happen.
To commemorate two hundred years since the birth of Charles Darwin, this two part series combines dramatic reconstruction of Charles Darwin's voyage around the globe onboard The Beagle, from 1831 to 1836, which provided his scientific observations culminating in the publication of the Theory of Evolution in 1859, with contemporary scientific analysis of his findings that both prove and disprove his understanding of evolutionary theory.
Interview with Richard Smalley
From the early work of Dalton and Priestley to modern scientists quest to create atomic particles, explore the top discoveries in the world of chemistry.
Our host, Bill Nye, shows us "Micrographia", the book that championed the use of the microscope in science and set the stage for our first discovery in biology, microorganisms.
In tonight's episode Cathy and Luke hunt down sand frogs that drink their own urine and start a fire with nothing but a bit of old wood and some combustible roo poo. Luke puts his new-found confidence to the test on the dance floor and Cathy tries some tongue-twisting rap with the kidz in the hood in Tennant Creek.
