In our fourth episode, the team put more science to the test.

Dallas looks at the origins of our weather and explains how the emergence of seasons allowed life to form, all with the help of a grenade launcher.

Jem travels to Scotland to check out the latest green technology - wave power.

And Liz meets Richard Dawkins to prove evolution, by taking a closer look at the eye. It's a contentious issue, so why not join our debate: Look evolution in the eye.
