A comedy series that explores the triumphs and disasters of human ingenuity.
Each week, Helen Keen, together with Peter Serafinowicz and Susy Kane, looks at the biggest problems that have faced our species since the dawn of time, and describe humanity's incredible, and sometimes absurd, solutions.
For every living thing the world is full of challenges. How to get food and shelter, how to get from place to place, how to make more living things just the same as you. But where people come into their own as a species is technology. This show is about big problems and the brilliant, unlikely and sometimes downright dangerous, technological solutions humanity has come up with to solve them.
