Curiosity kills no cats, it makes you an internet sensation. The six-part series You Have Been Warned breaks new ground as the first user-generated science programme and is a fast-paced countdown of the creme de la creme of internet heroes.
From the cleverest, funniest, most daring, outrageous and just downright bizarre, You Have Been Warned scours the worldwide web and the globe to track down the top 20 backyard boffins who take things into their own hands and turn everyday objects into astonishing science.
So what does it take to be an internet sensation? You Have Been Warned features a panel of the world's best science experts to unpack and explain these stunts and experiments.
With the help of storytelling graphics, they will explain the what, how and why of the biology, physics, and chemistry that made the experiments possible.
On You Have Been Warned, meet backwards-talking girls in the US, human-powered flying machines in Canada, poultry whisperers who can hypnotise chickens, an amazing South Korean popcorn maker who pops all kernels at one go in a mighty explosion, a New Zealander who built a robot rock band, Karachi's very own Evel Knievel, who can fly three times higher than a passenger jet can and witness the magnificent view of space, Edgar the robot from the UK, and much more.
From self-experimenting human guinea pigs and dukes of havoc to nature-obsessed thrill-seekers and the danger junkies of epic stunts, You Have Been Warned is the definitive countdown of astounding ideas and experiments in cyberspace.
You Have Been Warned premieres Fri, Nov 16 at 9pm and repeats on Saturday at 8am on Discovery Channel (TrueVisions 20).
