Let's redesign the human!
We'll soon be able to edit our genome, travel in driverless cars, hug companion robots... let's write a to-do list for humanity.
Wouldn't it be great to zoom in with your eyes, change colour at will or type with your feet?
Each episode, we consider pitches from experts, the studio audience and Mother Nature herself. We’re looking for good ideas for the next stage of humanity.
We are recording episodes for series 2 and will be at Microdot festival on June 15th. Come along and see us!
Trying to keep charge of all of this is biologist, comedian and presenter, Simon Watt.
Best known for the BAFTA winning Inside Nature’s Giants and Channel 4's The Elephant: Life After Death, Simon runs the Ugly Animal Preservation Society and now sets out his new mission: move the human race onwards and upwards. This man loves an uphill battle.
Here's a link to all the content we've released so far.
Including episodes with Robin Ince, Danielle Ward, Holly Walsh, Robert Llewellyn, Professor Sophie Scott and Dan Schreiber. We'll have more episodes to come in due course. Watch this space for more details!
