Science Week Themed Shows

How to Save the Planet in 45 mins - Discover the pollution of modern living and innovations for creating a sustainable planet. Will Dr Ken avoid being blown up by a rotting banana? Will he be distracted by fantastic plastic? Can he find planet friendly ways to make electricity? He may well be talking (about) rubbish, but it will make sense!!!
