In the 5th series of Bang Jem, Liz, Dallas and Yan investigate more fascinating science stories, such as why diamonds aren't forever, a robot to call your own, stem cell research, bedbugs, cleaning up radioactive waste   - and much more.  Have a look at our episode-by-episode guide below.

We also have some follow-up articles elaborating on these topics, as we delve inside the science. And don't forget, if something sparks your interest, you can take your learning journey further with an OU course, or, if you just have a point to make or fancy an online debate, you can add a comment at the bottom of any our pages.
