    The episode saw Professor Van-Tam explain how viruses can infect our bodies and how a revolution in testing may transform medicine forever.

    Alongside immunologist Professor Katie Ewer and virologist Professor Ravi Gupta, the lecture revealed the inner workings of the virus by blowing it up and invited the audience to take part in a heist mission.

    They are the world’s longest-running science television series and aim to inspire and amaze each year through explosive demonstrations and interactive experiments with a live theatre audience.
