Similar to Mythbusters, Brainiac is the show that squares up to science and says, 'Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough!'.
It's a unique beast - part science, part stunts - all mental. Each episode brings you all that's weird, wonderful and wild in the world of science, served up with a healthy dollop of explosions, pyrotechnics and anything else we can get our hands on - legally or illegally!
Our intrepid presenter Richard Hammond (Top Gear) will risk eyebrows and fingertips in a selfless quest to further scientific knowledge.
