The duo examine inventions that keep people safe, beginning with ejector seats - complicated contraptions that save the lives of a number of pilots each year. A pigeon fancier tests how unmanned drones work, and science reporter Jem Stansfield finds out how 1940s actress Hedy Lamarr's efforts to design a new torpedo guidance system laid the foundations for short-range wireless technology. Narrated by Ashley Jensen.
