Sunday Times best-selling author of A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson, teams up with The Science Museum to celebrate the ideas and inventions of the incurably curious. 

Across this five-episode series, Bill Bryson, with the help of The Science Museum’s curators, takes us object-by-object through some of the museum’s lesser known inventions and discoveries – and the human stories behind them. 

Discover how a teenage inventor, a pig’s head, a lump of plywood and a famous British record label made medical history or how some inventions simply happen by accident. This ‘museum for your ears’ looks at how experimentation, competition, hard work and a desire to change our lives for the better have contributed to the progress of mankind.
