Bang Goes the Theory, Series 1 Episode 1 of 10

In the series that puts science to the test, the team demonstrates cutting-edge developments in technology, and explains scientific principles that govern the world around us.

Jem Stansfield builds a vortex cannon to try and achieve what the big bad wolf could not: blowing over a house of brick; Dallas Campbell takes on the big brother technology that will track every one of us simply by the way we walk; Liz Bonnin confronts the controversial US scientist working to create the first generation of artificial life; and Dr Yan Wong tackles unsuspecting shoppers with a simple question: how do you cook an egg with a piece of newspaper?
