Regarding an item we featured on a so-called “Human Circuit” on the 18th April we would like to make the following correction:- If the circuit made in the film had been an ordinary wire circuit, using metal wires to conduct electricity, then ‘Free Electrons’ would have been correct. However this was not an ordinary circuit, it used an ‘ionic solution’ (salt /water) and, therefore the flow of electricity is made up of ‘ions’ and not ‘free electrons’. We apologise for the error.
