... about Chemistry.

Have you ever wondered if certain chemicals can make you irresistible to the opposite sex? Well James May certainly has, and with the help of dynamic motion graphics, he distills the sensuous secrets and explains how our world is really just one big laboratory as he reveals all you need to know about chemisty.

Join James as he discovers what sorcerers and scientists have wondered for centuries - whether we can turn lead into gold - and just maybe, shares chemistry's secret to eternal life. Along the way, he reveals how what you flush down your toilet could actually be making you money, how the booze in your bottle could power a jet and why the elements in the periodic table are just like us - they don't all get along.
