Nature, Science

So you think you know about …

Synopsis

From the most familiar to the really surprising.
We live in a world where we’re surrounded by things, ideas, feelings, stories, and news items that are so familiar that we take them for granted. We just assume we know what there is to know about them and that’s that.

But this series turns this on its head. We take something so familiar and common we hardly give it any thought, and delve into it in depth to reveal surprising, little-known things you never realised.

In a repeating series of six 30 minute-programs, we show you your own world in a way you haven’t seen before. The topics will be mixed throughout the series, so even the content of the next episode will be a surprise.

We use a humorous visual style that is a mixture of “2 ½ D” animation, licensed clips from YouTube, TikTok, and innovative camera technology using fast-cut and pacy editing to engage you in exploring something that normally doesn’t even get a second glance.

Each series will be a mix and match of categories and topics – categories that can repeat themselves, and topics that will surprise the audience with unexpected twists.

We’ll pick from
THE WORLD: Volcanoes, Clouds, Rivers;
EMOTIONS: Love, Fear, Humour;
NATURE: Flowers, Pigs, Trees;
HOME: Electricity, Beer, Salt;
PEOPLE: Charles Darwin, Van Gogh, Spies;
YOU: Brain, DNA, Ageing;
ENGINEERING: Trains, Bridges, Bicycles;
MATERIALS: Algae, Bamboo, Plastic; …
and many more!

Hosted or hostless, this programme will provide you with everything you ever wanted to know – and more!
