This is the show that combines cold hard science with some of the craziest, most spectacular and painful user generated clips ever recorded.   Richard Hammond introduces all manner of mishaps featuring brave, if misguided individuals from around the world and then explains the science behind their failure and humiliation with the use of bespoke animations and super slo-mo cinematography. Each week we show between 50 and 60 clips of misadventure – ordinary folk making extraordinary mistakes. Each episode will feature several themes such as weightlifting, shooting guns or jumping over cars and each theme will be paused, re-wound, and re-played as we analyse exactly what went wrong and why. Richard Hammond explains the physics, chemistry and biology at play, he will present forensic detail to explain the stupidity that resulted in failure. He’ll look at everything including weight, volume, momentum, combustion and even how the brain operates. This is misadventure explained. This is Science of Stupid.
