Don’t Die Young

I’ve been watching a little of Alice Roberts’ BBC TV series, “Don’t Die Young”. Dr Roberts is an anatomist based at the University of Bristol, and has been heavily involved in publicising science. (Is that a term I just imagined? I mean to engage the public in science). You’ll have seen her on the Coast series, if not elsewhere.
It’s great to see some proper science on TV instead of the pseudoscience crap that TV moguls allow on their channels. Use BBC’s iPlayer to see the stomach and intestines episode. There are no magical stool studies or tongue checks that tell you about the health of your kidneys here.
Dr Alice Roberts: Don’t Die Young: Series 2: The Stomach and Intestines. (Programmes remain on iPlayer for about a week).
