Kitchen Lab

Why does the milk rise? Why does the bread get toasted? Why does meat soften with the heat? Why do we cry with the onion? Why do we get swollen with legumes? Why does chilli sting us? Or why do sweets give us pleasure? All these questions will be answered by the series “Kitchen Lab, eating has its science” hosted by the science journalist Andrea Obaid and cell biologist Alejandro Roth.

All the chemical, physical and biological reactions that take place when we cook will be explained, where the kitchen becomes a true laboratory. In ‘Kitchen Lab’ Andrea and Alejandro will search the origin of food and the stories of traditional recipes. With a sustainable, healthy and scientific view of the kitchen, the secrets behind food will be revealed with humour, travel and a lot of cooking.

Remote Control War

The current campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan are the world’s first Robotic War, with over 7,000 robots in the air and 12,000 on the ground. Warfare has been revolutionised in a monumental shift. Mankind’s five thousand year monopoly on war is breaking down. Robotic war is here.

MS Wars: Hope, Science and the Internet

In the 21st century the medical system for research was abruptly derailed by two factors that no one saw coming: Hope, and the Internet.

The trigger was Multiple Sclerosis.  The progressive, debilitating symptoms of this cruel disease are fatigue, loss of muscle control and for many, death.  There is no cure.  But, in 2009, there was suddenly a ray of hope, a treatment that might help MS patients.  Liberation therapy, a procedure that opened neck veins, bypassed conventional theory, and fractured the doctor-patient relationship.

MS Wars  – Hope, Science & the Internet delves into the science, controversy and human drama around Liberation therapy.  It is a cautionary tale about how the Internet has spurred a social network movement that is changing the doctor/patient relationship and the repercussions for physicians, institutions and us all. 

Coded World

Algorithms are everywhere today, infiltrating every aspect of our lives, and using big data to change how we live on a daily basis. And this is just the beginning of the algorithmic age. Algorithms are the building blocks for almost all advanced technology today, from Amazon shopping recommendations to the most sophisticated artificial intelligence. Anjan Sundaram – author, journalist and mathematician – travels the world to meet with people designing this code, and people affected by this algorithmic revolution. We see how this code is making and taking away our choices, affecting the fate of nations and the freedom of individuals, being used to create virtual beings, communities and worlds, and ultimately changing who we are and what we will become in tomorrow’s world.
