In this 7th series of Bang Jem, Liz and Maggie investigate more weird and wonderful science stories, including some surprising medical uses for plastics, sugar on trial, rear-facing seats for children, how suspended animation keeps old food looking deceptively fresh, urban underground farming, the latest research and action on air pollution - 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.
