Fridays From October 25 7.30pm Channel 074

Temperature is a natural part of our everyday lives. It’s there when we shiver in the cold, watch a lightning storm or boil the kettle for tea. We think we know all about temperature, but the science behind it is full of surprises.

Explosive demonstrations and fascinating case studies examine temperatures at a molecular, human and planetary level. Witness solids that behave like liquids, super-cooled ceramics that defy gravity, and plasmas hotter than the sun. Everyday notions of temperature are turned on their head in a show guaranteed to provoke heated debate.
