"Science was never my favourite subject in school," said Harith Iskander, "So I was initially apprehensive when BBC approached me to do 'GOT SCIENCE?' I never quite understood the complex scientific theories and formulae the teachers rattled on about in school. I realise now that it wasn't interesting to me because it wasn't relevant to my daily life. 'Got Science?' approaches science in a way that is fresh, fun and accessible and I hope that viewers will enjoy it and have many light bulb moments as I did."
'GOT SCIENCE?' will premiere on BBC Earth on Tuesday, 11 September at 8.05pm & will be available on BBC Player at the same time.
