Once again the English batsmen have been destroyed by the West Indies pace bowling. Yet how do you play a ball that is coming towards you at 100 mph? Top batsmen say it's just a matter of watching the ball to see what happens. Psychologists say that they're fooling themselves. The brain cannot react in less than a quarter of a second. If you haven't guessed what kind of ball is coming at you within the first tenth of a second, you're already too late to do anything about it.
With a new cricket season about to begin Kieran Prendiville , a keen amateur, sets out to discover whether there is science to the game of cricket; from facing the bowling of England captain Ian Botham, to doing experiments in the wind tunnel at Cambridge University.

Forty years ago this week on 15 May 1941, a diminutive experimental aircraft took off from Cranwell aerodrome on its maiden flight. It was known simply as the E28/39, and was the first British jet. The engine which had made the flight possible was the result of years of unremitting work, against the background of financial insecurity and a marked lack of official interest, by a dedicated RAF officer - Wing Commander Frank Whittle - the man who invented the jet.
But the road to jet propulsion was to prove stony, and the programme traces Sir Frank Whittle 's hard struggle to get a practical jet engine into the air.
