At Bristol's hands-on science museum, the Exploratory, 40 scientific experts were brought together and given video access to more than 30 years of BBC science programmes. Among them was Dr Martin Fleischmann , featured in tonight's Horizon.
Their group discussions, arguments and debates on subjects of current scientific concern, have been marshalled into four programmes, broadcast nightly in this, British Science Week. Contributors are able to choose their own evidence from the BBC archives and call up clips on screen exactly when they want to.
In the first discussion,
Strangers in a Strange Land, a case is argued against the scientific establishment. Roy Porter is in the chair.
Series producer Martin Freeth
