BrainUnknown - 2014
Combining in-depth studio discussion with exploratory films and on-the-spot reports, Dara O Briain's Science Club takes a single subject each week and examines it from unexpected angles. In the fifth episode, Dara traces the brain's journey from a useless organ once ditched by Egyptian embalmers to the center of everything that makes us human. Science journalist Alok Jha asks whether smart drugs really make you brainier; oceanographer Helen Czerski explores cutting edge therapies allowing the brain to control limbs remotely; and materials scientist Mark Miodownik takes apart a smart phone.
