From Leonardo Da Vinci to Galileo, from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to George Stephenson, this series celebrates the work of some of the world’s most important inventors and scientists. It’s a fact-laden, informative show involving experiments and explorations of scientific theories — it's fun, irreverent, mucky and explosion-filled too.


Richard McCourt and Dominic Wood investigate the work of ancient Greek mathematician and expert engineer Archimedes.
