Product Description

Hosted by science enthusiasts, Jay Ingram and Natasha Stillwell, Daily Planet is a series that provides discussion and commentary on the scientific aspects of current events. Featuring interviews, field pieces and real-life experiments from around the world, Daily Planet provides a fast-paced, enlightening and entertaining look at what is happening on (and off) our planet.

The Nutrition Series features the human body and its function, the science behind how food grows and the ingredients and technology behind the things we eat.

The Human Body: Our Memory

Daily Planet gets a cue from our brain. We meet a man who has a superhuman capacity for  memory, and learn how scanning pilots’ brains can improve the art of flying. We explore how a blind daredevil uses his mind and senses to deep dive alongside sharks and successfully pilot a high-powered jet. This exciting Daily Planet program demonstrates how everything from performing simple to complex tasks, retaining information and our bodies’ reactions are all controlled by signals from our brain!
