    Meditation has become a new field of research for scientists. An illuminating documentary on its benefits for our health. Psychiatrists, neurologists and molecular biologists are increasingly interested in the beneficial effects of meditation on the functioning of our brain and body. Their recent discoveries have allowed meditation techniques to be used in hospitals, in the United States and in Europe, where they are used, in therapeutic accompaniment, to reduce, in particular, the chronic pain and the stress related to many pathologies.

      Industries, mining, and air transport, car traffic: Our planet is suffocating, and air pollution has already become one of the leading causes of death in the world. Coupled with another danger - global warming, due to the emission of greenhouse gases - the situation is now critical, and seems out of control. But on the five continents, scientists, engineers, architects, are on the ground to fight against the effects as well as the causes of this deadly poisoning. They invent solutions to clean up the atmosphere of the planet, and perhaps make it breathable again in the future.

      The genius of Albert Einstein never ceases to allure. Following his autopsy in 1955, Einstein's brain is said to have been sliced and scattered among researchers around the world. Where are the pieces now? NHK goes in pursuit of remnants in Japan, the US, Canada, and Argentina, rediscovering hundreds of photos taken during the autopsy as well as an individual in possession of over 100 fragments. The data set is then brought together to build a 3D CGI, successfully "recreating" Einstein's brain as it would have been in his 20s, when he proposed the theory of relativity. An extraordinary journey and the latest in neuroscience turn a new page in the story of the genius's brain.

    • 尼安德塔人:給人類的教訓

      尼安德塔人曾經雄霸歐洲數十萬年,他們享有過美好的生活,而且食物供應充足。種種證據顯示,尼安德塔人非常適應他們的生活環境,但於大約四萬年前,他們消失了,為甚麼他們會絕種呢?其中一個原因,可能是他們在一次重大對決中敗給了現代智人。


      電視版本:雙語廣播(粵語/英語)

      In this episode, Ella Al-Shamahi explores the fate of the Neanderthals - asking why they became extinct, and discovering how they live on inside of us today. The programme starts in the caves of Gibraltar, which may have been the last place the Neanderthals survived. Discoveries here have shown the Neanderthals lived a good life - feasting on seafood and wild game. These were a people who were supremely well adapted to their environment. But about 40,000 years ago they disappeared. Why? One of the reasons might have been that they lost out in a physical showdown with modern humans. Ella investigates one of the world's oldest murder mysteries.

    • 尼安德塔人:重遇

      一連兩集節目的首集,會研究尼安德塔人的外貌以及他們於冰河時期的生活。原來尼安德塔人與我們印象中的其實大相徑庭,他們並非駝背、不懂說話、不懂直立行走的猿人,實際上他們比我們想像的更快、更聰明、更漂亮、更像我們。英國年輕主持艾娜•艾莎瑪希,是研究尼安德塔人範疇的新星,同時亦是棟篤笑表演者。她亦找來於《魔戒》電影飾演咕嚕及於《猿人爭霸戰》電影飾演凱撒的國際電影明星兼動作捕捉大師安迪•瑟克斯幫忙。

      This first programme in a two-part series investigates what Neanderthals looked like and how they lived in their Ice Age world. It turns out that almost everything we thought we knew about them is wrong. They weren't hunched, grunting, knuckle-dragging ape-men at all. In reality they were faster, smarter, better looking - and much more like us than we ever thought. Our guide is Ella Al-Shamahi, a young, British, rising star in Neanderthal research, with an unusual side-line as a stand-up comic She enlists the skills of Andy Serkis, the global movie star and master of performance capture, best known as Gollum in the Lord of the Rings and Caesar in Planet of the Apes.

    • 時光機說明書

      自然法則並沒有阻止人類進行時間旅行,但若要製造一部時光機,則需要更了解這些法則,甚至要打破常規,才有機會做得到,而科學家在這方面的知識每天都在增加。本節目的攝製隊遠赴英國、俄羅斯、北美、加拿大以至澳洲,與不同的科學家會面,了解他們在這尖端科學範疇所作的努力:他們當中有研究製造蟲洞的、有嘗試操控光子糾纏的、也有建造時間晶體的。這些科學家都在為未來的工程師鋪路,祈望他們有一天能達成我們今天可望而不可即的夢想──製造出時光機,讓人類只需一按鍵,便能穿梭古今。或許你也可以成為時光旅人!你以為這只是科幻小說的橋段?那先看看這節目吧。

      Time travel is not forbidden by the laws of nature - but to build a time machine, we’d need to understand more about those laws and how to subvert them than we do now. But everyday, science does learn more. In this film, shot in the UK, Russia, North America, Canada and Australia, Horizon meets the scientists working on the cutting edge of discovery - men and women who may discover how to build wormholes, manipulate entangled photons or build fully functioning time crystals; in short enable an engineer of the future to do what we have so far been only able to imagine: To build a machine that allows us travel back and forward in time at the touch of a button. It could be you! Science fiction? Watch this space.

    • 跨越性別

      人是從何知道自己的性別呢?有人覺得自己是男性或女性,但也有人覺得自己界乎兩者之間。世界上很多人都不認同自己出生時所獲分配的性別,同時越來越多人不再按傳統性別分野來表現自己,令性別界線變得越見模糊。

      本節目將探討變性的真正意思,採訪過程中生理、心理及生物學上的轉變。節目將訪問多位正進行變性人士,以過來人角度道出當中心路歷程,包括從社交層面開始變性的女人、兩位開始服用賀爾蒙藥的年輕人、以及接受手術的變性女人。節目亦同時訪問性別學專家,探討現代醫藥如何協助轉性,及究竟性別認同是從何而來。

      How does a person know their gender? Do they see themselves as male or female, or somewhere in between? More and more people around the world do not identify with the gender they were assigned to at birth. Increasingly, people are expressing their gender identity outside of the 'norms', and the lines of gender are becoming more blurred than ever. This film explores what it actually means to be transgender, and what happens when a person transitions psychologically, physically and biologically. We follow a number of transgender people going through their own transition. From a socially transitioning transwoman to two young transmen embarking on hormones, to a transwoman going through gender confirmation surgery - we get a snapshot into what transitioning and being transgender is really like from those living it. We also hear from experts in the field of gender and find out how modern medicine is helping people to transition their gender. And we explore where gender identity actually comes from.

      「DNA是新興數據。」這個說法日漸流行,事實上,人類現時已經能夠精確地為人體細胞、胚胎、細菌、病毒以致植物重組設定程式,有了CRISPR科技,我們可以隨意改變每一個生物體的特性,透過這技術,我們不用再生病,可以改善身體狀況,亦能改造植物基因,滿足人類的食用需要。CRISPR的特別之處,在於這是相對簡單的技術,過去一年,以CRISPR進行的實驗及應用數目增長驚人,世界各地都有人去試驗CRISPR的不同用法,更出現了家用的「CRISPR自助實驗套裝」,因此,科學家呼籲要訂立新的操守指引,而預計所謂「訂製設計嬰兒」的需求會愈來愈大,這現象極具爭議性。另一方面,不久將來後,我們或可以終止遺傳病,製造細菌去吸食油份及塑膠,在豬的身上培植人體適用的器官,甚至令已絕種的動物重生!這一切都聽起來都好像是天馬行空,但其實已經近在眼前。

      ‘Bio is the New Digital’. We are capable of precisely reprogramming the genetic code of our body’s cells, embryos, bacteria, viruses and plants. With the CRISPR-technology we can alter the characteristics of every organism to our own design. In doing so we will be able to eradicate diseases, improve the condition of our bodies and alter plants to meet the specific needs of our food consumption. What makes the CRISPR-technology so special is that it is relatively simple. During the past year the number of experiments and applications has exploded. People all around the world are now tinkering with the CRISPR results: experimenting at home with ‘Do it Yourself CRISPR-kits’. Scientists are therefore calling for new ethical guidelines. The demand for the (un)desirability of so-called designer babies is on the rise. Although it is not yet possible, we will soon be able to put an end to hereditary diseases. Perhaps we can also create bacteria that can eat oil or plastic, pigs in which human organs are being grown or bring extinct species of animals back to life. It all sounds like science fiction but it is closer than ever before.
