Junior scientist Josephine shows us how to split a light bean and expose all the colours of the rainbow. The light emitted from a regular torch appears white, but when passed through a prism it changes speed and disperses across the differing wavelengths, giving you each colour in the visible spectrum. To conduct this experiment at home, you will need a few torches, a glass prism, red, green and blue cellophane, rubber bands and a darkened room.

Arthropods comprise the phylum Euarthropoda and are invertebrates characterised by their external skin or exoskeleton (integument), a segmented body and jointed limbs that come in pairs. Join junior scientist Carrick as he explores all the incredible arthropods found in our backyard, common critters such as ants, spiders, dragonflies and even crabs. Listen as he explains how ants use pheromones to communicate and spiders use vibration to identify their prey.

This is a gripping tale of distant desperation and heroics. When an oxygen leak threatened the lives of three astronauts, the mission became a life or death attempt to get them home safely, organised by people 200,000 miles away. With limited power and supplies on board the spacecraft, NASA teams worked around the clock to engineer creative solutions to overcome carbon dioxide poisoning, dehydration, and the freezing temperatures of deep space to ensure the crew's survival. Using spectacular footage, exclusive interviews with Apollo's space scientists and stunning visual effects, this film explores 13 remarkable factors that brought the crew safely home. Explore the full story of the courage and ingenuity that cemented Apollo 13 as NASA's finest hour.
