Can a swing go over the top through 360 degrees?

Help

Following a request from a viewer, Bang Goes The Theory sets out to discover whether a swing can travel through 360 degrees.

After tests using a dummy with a rocket strapped to its back, Jem Stansfield gets into the hot seat. But please do not try this at home!

You can see Jem's description of his experience on the Bang Goes The Theory website.

The programme goes out on BBC One on Mondays at 1930 GMT or catch up via the BBC iPlayer.
