    For the past 20 years, the world has seen an alarming decrease in IQ and a rise of autism and behavioral disorders. A international scientific investigation reveals how chemicals in objects surrounding us disrupt the endocrine system in our body, and in turn affect our brain, and especially those of fetuses. How can we stop this worrying trend?

      Welcome to the biome inside your home: a world of insects and spiders as rich, as surprising, and as beautiful as any other ecosystem. Every corner is a potential lair, every carpet a dense forest, and the wide spaces of your kitchen, an open savannah where food is abundant. Many creatures will be safe and sound in your home. But if you decide to set them free outside, you may in fact be dooming them to death in a world they have never known. Entomologists will investigate what they really are, how they have adapted to live with us, and how our lives intersect.

    • 隱形殺手之超級細菌

      隱形殺手之超級細菌

      每年有成千上萬人因為感染了多重抗藥性細菌而死,即使用上多種抗生素,也無法治癒。各地的專家和政治家都警告,這種惡菌已經成為現代醫學最棘手的難題。數百萬人將會患上一些我們以為早已消滅的疾病,而且更會因為缺乏有效的抗生素而死亡。本節目將揭示,原來重要藥物的生產商,對於多重抗藥性細菌傳遍全球有不可推卸的責任,而且連他們也對這些惡菌束手無策。

      Hundreds of thousands of people die annually, due to multi-resistant germs - bacteria, which are no longer challenged by the use of many antibiotics. Experts and politicians from all corners of the world warn of the looming catastrophe: multi-resistant pathogens are currently the most major risk faced by modern medicine. Millions of people will die without effective antibiotics, of illnesses that have long been considered eradicated. This documentary shows however, that of all people, it is the manufacturers of vital medication that contribute to the development and global propagation of extremely resistant germs and that not even their own resources have any effect on them.

    • 幽靈血管

      幽靈血管

      據說我們身體裏99%的血管都是微絲血管。隨着年紀增長,這些小血管會穿洞,變成空空如也的「幽靈血管」,令皮膚出現皺紋。科學家發現,這些幽靈血管會令我們更易患上骨質疏鬆症和阿茲海默症。本節目將利用最先進的生物成像技術,解構這些幽靈血管如何影響我們的身體,亦會探討怎樣令微絲血管延緩老化,甚至修復其帶來的傷害。

      電視版本:雙語廣播(粵語/英語)

      99% of human blood vessels are said to be capillaries. With age, these tiny tubules break, becoming hollow "ghost" vessels that cause wrinkles in the skin. Scientists are now finding they are also tied to a higher risk of age-related ailments, including osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease. Using advanced biological imaging techniques, this program delves into the mechanism behind broken capillaries. It also examines how to slow down or even repair the damage to help people live longer, healthier lives.

    • 大地的想像

      大地的想像

      大地孕育萬物。它除了為我們提供糧食,還可以發電,靠的是地殼的熱能,甚至是植物的細菌。科學家最近更利用土地,將二氧化碳變成石頭。在羅馬尼亞,有一個由地下鹽礦改建而成的遊樂場,那裏空氣中的鹽分據聞有助遊人強身健體。土地,還有甚麼意想不到的用處?

      The earth nurtures everything. Not only is food harvested from the soil, power can also be generated by our land - more specifically, by the thermal energy in it; even bacteria of plants can do the trick. Some other scientists are recently using land to turn CO2 into rocks. In Romania, an underground salt mine is turned into a recreational space, in which the salty air is said to be beneficial to our health. What other unexpected uses does the earth have?

    • 風的想像

      大家都知道風力發電,不過你聽過「颱風發電」嗎?據估計,颱風的能量,足夠為地球上一半的人口提供電力。不過怎樣的風車,才不會被颱風摧毀呢?有工程師正在設計無扇葉的風力發電機,它是如何運作的呢?另一邊廂,有人嘗試利用氣球來運送貨物和進行科學研究。風,還有甚麼嶄新的可能性?

      電視版本:雙語廣播

      We all know what wind power is, but do you know typhoons could generate power too? It is estimated that the energy of typhoons, if harnessed, could provide electricity for half of the world. But first we would need wind turbines that would not be destroyed by strong winds. Engineers are designing turbines without blades – how does that work? Some others are trying to turn balloons into a means of transporting goods and conducting scientific research. What are the other possibilities that lie in the movement of air?

    • 太陽的想像

      雖然太陽能不會污染環境、供應又源源不絕,但現時全球的太陽能發電量只佔不到2%。為了令這種能源更加普遍,有工程師嘗試將太陽能電池板鋪在地上,而非屋頂,這方法會否成功?又有人利用太陽能上天下海、環遊世界;甚至用太陽能將沙熔化、變成玻璃製品,甚至用作建築材料。

      電視版本:雙語廣播

      As clean and inexhaustible as solar energy is, it only represents less than 2% of global power generation. To make better use of this resource, some engineers are trying to put solar panels on the ground, instead of the roofs. Does it work? Some others try to fly to the sky and sail around the world; some even melt the sand and turn it into glass products and construction materials – all depending on just the power of the sun.

    • 夢中見

      夢是人類最大的謎團之一。我們幾乎每晚也會做夢,但為甚麼我們會做夢?夢境是通往潛意識的一扇窗,還是大腦在睡着時的理性產物?為甚麼有些人會做噩夢,甚至是重複做同一個噩夢?現時,醫學界已經發現一種簡單而有效的方法,幫人趕走噩夢,這方法到底是甚麼?

      It is one of the big mysteries of humanity: almost every night we dream, but why? Are dreams a window into our unconsciousness or a rational product of our sleeping brain? Why do some of us have nightmares, or even recurring nightmares? Now, a simple but effective way has been found to rid people of nightmares. What is this cure?

    • AI:一切從深度學習開始

      深度學習是近年工程界掀起的大變革,能令人工智能在分析及詮釋大量數據時表現得更好。現在,人工智能在很多實際應用的表現上已超越人類。下一步,是要讓人工智能擁有自我意識、對世界有整體的瞭解。不過,發展出完整的人工智能,會不會如霍金所預言,導致人類滅亡呢?

      電視版本:雙語廣播(粵語/英語)

      Deep Learning is a radical and recent revolution from engineering. It allows artificial intelligence to better analyse and interpret large volumes of data. Now, AI has already out-performed humans in many applications. The next step would be equipping AI with a consciousness and a general understanding of the world. But, would the development of full AI spell the end of human race, as Stephen Hawking predicted?
