BREAKING NEWS: The first series of Domestic Science has finished, but we’ve already been commissioned to create a second series for BBC Radio 4! Join our mailing list at the bottom of this page to hear about the recordings and broadcasts before anyone else.



Those delightful elves who work behind the scenes on QI asked us to be part of their latest series, full of “N” words like Naked, Noel, Non Sequitur and – of course – Nerd. Catch us doing some of our favourite experiments with Sandi and the panel in three episodes of the hit BBC Two series this Autumn.

Domestic Science

Our radio comedy show exploring the science around us – where you get to play along at home!

That bedtime cup of hot chocolate next to you, the alarm clock within your reach, the banana in your fruit bowl, and that other object near you… Yes, that one right there. It’s totally covered in science too, and the Nerds will help reveal it.

In a world where everything is shorter and sharper than ever before – TED talks, the 5:2 diet, High Intensity Interval Training – Domestic Science looks to impart bite-size learning about the everyday objects in your life. It will pop into your brain before you sleep and allow your sub-conscious to turn you into a know-it-all genius* while you sleep. Recorded in front of a live audience for BBC Radio 4, get your intensive hit of comedy, science and live experiments all from the comfort of your bed or as you drive home.
