Rough Science

on BBC Two England

A hunt for gold gets under way in the first of a new, six-part series. Kate Humble joins a team of scientists-turned-prospectors as they follow in the footsteps of the original gold pioneers on New Zealand's South Island. This week, can they extract gold from a river, build a home-made metal detector and construct a highly-accurate balance?
