SUPER SCIENCE MONDAYS

GENETIC REVOLUTION
Brand New Documentary Special - premieres 01 February 2021

CAT: 21:00

Genetic Revolution is a documentary that explores the exciting, rapidly evolving world of genetic engineering. It follows a group of scientists from across the globe as they use powerful new gene editing technologies in ways once thought unimaginable and is witness to a tipping point, recording scientific moments destined to change the world. The film also tackles the philosophical and environmental implications of this technology.

Technologies like CRISPR are making it possible to quickly and cheaply change the DNA of all living things, including humans. Genes can be edited almost as easily as words on a computer screen. This new ability to alter our DNA holds the promise of curing disease, saving threatened species, solving world hunger and maybe even obtaining human perfection. But will the promise be fulfilled?

VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL
Brand New Documentary Special - premieres 10 February 2021

CAT: 20:00

Valentine’s Day, the most romantic night of the year. If you’re feeling uninspired as you prepare to woo your intended, how about looking to the animal kingdom for a few ideas? Whether taking them to a dance, offering a bouquet or running them a bath, there’s a lot the natural world can teach us about love. You might think humans are the only animals to fall in love, but romance can come in all shapes and sizes. Most animals go for one night stands, and there are others that have brief, but intense, flings. Then there are some that take love more seriously, putting on the moves, giving gifts and performing for attention. It’s often a remarkable spectacle, but it can also be the tender beginnings of a lifelong bond. Animals might not write many love poems, but there are many other ways to ensure your next Valentine’s gets wild!

Islands can be home to the most extreme examples of life, as nature evolves in the most dramatic way. Sometimes isolated for hundreds of thousands of years, pockets of individuals adapt to survive, fueling a rapid and continuous development of new species.

Some of the Zanzibar archipelago’s bizarre creatures have developed to an enormous size. The world’s largest crab scales trees in search of coconuts, and clouds of giant bats fill the skies at dusk. Under the cover of darkness, giant leatherback turtles visit Trinidad’s beaches to lay their eggs. Dominica’s volcanic heritage gives it fertile soils, making the island rich in flowering plants. Situated 1,000km west of Ecuador, the Galapagos archipelago has been so little exposed to humans, it allowed Charles Darwin to study and rethink the laws of nature.
