Why has the bicycle has done more to improve the human immune system than any other invention in history? Is it a good idea for humans to try to reach out to extra-terrestrials? Are computers ruining music? Do smart drugs really make you brainier?

These questions and more are answered by Science Club - a six-part series on BBC Two. Each show takes a single subject and examines it from multiple perspectives, all underpinned by first-class science.
