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?

Our guest judges consider pitches from experts, the studio audience and Mother Nature herself in pursuit of good ideas for the next stage of humanity.

Level Up Human was created by Simon Watt and Rachel Wheeley and is supported by the Wellcome Trust.

Your host

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.
