We set out to discover the biological reasons why humans eat such a range of diverse tasting dishes, and watch while contestants at a chilli eating contest push their taste buds to the limit. Compared to many animals, humans have a try anything once attitude to food and this has allowed us to populate every corner of the planet, while many other animals depend totally on one food source for their energy, which limits where they can survive.

A baby's brain is a mystery whose secrets scientists are just beginning to unravel. The mystery begins in the womb - only four weeks into gestation the first brain cells, the neurons, are already forming at an astonishing rate: 250,000 every minute. Billions of neurons will forge links with billions of other neurons and eventually there will be trillions and trillions of connections between cells. Every cell is precisely in its place, every link between neurons carefully organised. Nothing is random, nothing arbitrary.
