BBC AMERICA'S CAPTIVATING SCIENCE SERIES "BANG GOES THE THEORY" EXPLODES WITH SPECTACULAR EXPERIMENTS AND CRAZY INNOVATIONS

From a human-powered airplane to free fuel and diamonds that aren't forever

"Bang Goes the Theory ... brings a refreshing anarchy to the genre." - The New York Times

BBC AMERICA's science-savvy series, Bang Goes the Theory, returns with all-new episodes featuring spectacular experiments and crazy innovations with hosts Dallas Campbell, biochemist Liz Bonnin, engineer Jem Stansfield and evolutionary biologist Dr. Yan Wong. The action-packed series goes from the sky (in a human-powered airplane) to the bottom of the sea (in the Royal Navy's latest search and rescue submarine) and everywhere in between to answer some of the most common, and a few not so common, questions. Making science both inspiring and engaging, the team investigates the issues that affect people every day. Bang Goes the Theory premieres with three back-to-back episodes Tuesday, June 4, 9:00pm ET/PT.

UPCOMING INVESTIGATIONS

· Why does gas cost so much? Can we use science to make fuel for free?

· Is modern technology affecting our hearing?

· Are digital storage formats safe? What does it take to wipe computer memory?

· How do architects control the flow of crowds?

· What are the health risks of wireless signals? Is wire-free electricity possible?

· Do we really need to drink eight glasses of water a day?

· How do hormones and blood sugar affect a person's energy and mood?

· What is behind our special relationship with dogs? Can they be good for your health?

· Why haven't we cured cancer yet?

THE TEAM

Dallas Campbell (@DallasCampbell)

Dallas' mantra is that you don't need to be a scientist to be in love with science. Before Bang Goes the Theory he investigated the scientific world from a layman's point of view in Dallas in Wonderland and The Gadget Show, among others. The former saw him having a crack at breaking the men's 100m record and journeying to the center of the Earth.

Liz Bonnin (@LizBonnin)

Liz has a degree in biochemistry from Trinity College, Dublin, and more recently returned to academia to study for a masters degree in wild animal biology and conservation. She now works for conservation programs at the Zoological Society of London, helping snow leopards and tigers. Liz has presented Top of the Pops, Brat Camp Unseen, RI:SE and Science Friction, covering topics such as nuclear power, stem cell research and obesity.

Jem Stansfield

Jem has a degree in aeronautics and a qualification in welding. He creates special effects for movies like Lost in Space and Van Helsing, and produces exhibits for the Science Museum and Royal Observatory. He's even worked with Wallace and Gromit. Jem has won a New Scientist prize for boots that walk on water. Before Bang Goes the Theory, he brought his hands-on approach to science and technology on UK programs Scrapheap Challenge, Men in White, Science Shack and Home on their Own.

Dr. Yan Wong (@DrYanWong)

As an undergraduate at Oxford, Yan studied under celebrated scientist Richard Dawkins and later undertook research for Dawkins on the evolutionary relationships between major forms of life. One result of their collaboration was a book, The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Life. Yan has a PhD in computational and mathematical modeling of self-incompatibility systems in plants and has lectured in evolutionary biology at Leeds University.
