Comedian and physicist Ben Miller explores the workings of the new LHC atom smasher at CERN in Switzerland and what it is designed to discover.

He looks at black holes and the beginning of time. The creation of miniature black holes could help scientists explain the nature of the force of gravity and open the way to parallel universes. Ben also learns about the critical moments during the Big Bang when matter was created and how it turned into atoms.
