Why scratch your head at science when Dr Chris, Dr Dave and Dr Kat are here to answer all your questions?!

There will also be a fireworks special in honour of bonfire night, including Dr Roy Lowry from the University of Plymouth who holds the record for firing the most rockets in five seconds, and Derek Thorne and Dave Ansell pull out an angle grinder for some sparkly Kitchen Science.
