Curiosity
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could live forever? What would happen if aliens
attacked? Why sex is fun? Welcome to Curiosity. More than just a landmark television series,
Curiosity is an adventure of discovery, an expedition to uncover the truths behind life's most
challenging questions. With an insatiable thirst for answers and experiences, we're prepared to do
anything, go anywhere and ask anyone to get to the heart of the matter. Whether it's jumping out of
an airplane to confront fear, having neuroscientists implant false memories, or donating tissue to
test the possibility of regeneration, there is nothing stopping us as we embark on a global journey
of learning and surprises. Curiosity asks and answers the most fundamental questions facing the
world today. Each episode of Curiosity will focus on a single enduring question in science,
technology, and society. As is always the case, one single question cascades into several more,
making each episode of Curiosity a rich and textured experience. From the micro to the macro, we
tackle provocative and insightful questions. Is there a Creator? Is it likely there's an alternate
universe? Could you find out exactly how you are going to die and would you want to know? Are some
people genetically prone to violence? Is time travel really possible? Why is it that we dream? What
don't we know about gravity and does it hold the secret for exploring the universe?
Curiosity promises a television experience unlike any other. Join Stephen Hawking, , Michelle
Rodriguez, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Morgan Spurlock, Adam Savage, Mike Rowe, Brendan Fraser, Eli Roth,
Robin Williams and many more celebrity hosts on the journey for truth, as we go to extremes to
uncover answers that will surprise even the most curious among us...


1) Did God Create the Universe
Stephen Hawking unfolds his personal, compelling vision of the biggest question of all - who or what
created the universe in which we live? In this programme, physics and cosmology become tools to
answer questions that philosophers have struggled with for thousands of years.
Stephen Hawking unfolds his personal, compelling vision of the biggest question of all: Who or what
created the universe in which we live? The groundbreaking series Into the Universe with Stephen
Hawking combined cutting-edge CG with Hawking's witty, distinctive and incisive worldview. Now, we
take the journey a step further, as physics and cosmology become tools to answer questions that
philosophers have struggled with for thousands of years.

2) Alien Invasion are We Ready
We've read the books, we've seen the movies. War of the Worlds, V, Independence Day. But they're all
fiction, right? Well, probably not. New science is suggesting that aliens may be very real, and that
they may not be as cuddly as E.T. Host Michelle Rodriguez (Avatar, Battle: LA) brings together top
scientists and military strategists to dramatize what would happen if and when aliens attack.

3) Why is Sex Fun
Orgasm - one of the most intense pleasures we can experience. But what are orgasms actually for? In
men, the answer's simple - reproduction. But women don't need an orgasm to get pregnant. So why have
them? With cutting edge science and research, Maggie Gyllenhaal hosts this revealing investigation
into the mystery of the orgasm.

4) What Sank Titanic
It has been almost 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic. We think we know the story, but how
much do we actually know about what went wrong? In the aftermath of the disaster, a full trial was
conducted. This Curiosity Volume 1 DVD gives us a unique take with harrowing first person testimony
from those who survived. This special will take those highly emotive human stories and for the first
time use them as pieces of an enormous detective story. We will forensically piece together the
precise mechanics of what went wrong and answer this question: How was the greatest piece of
structural engineering in human history defeated by one of the simplest elements on the planet - water?

5) Whats Beneath America
Everything which has made America bountiful and powerful is a product of forces which date back
billions of years. How have earth's ancient forces made America what it is today? How did they
create the gold that set California on a course to become the richest state in the Union, and how
did vast sheets of ice enable Kansas to produce enough wheat to give six loaves of bread a year to
every single person on earth? Using an array of dazzling visual effects, we connect past and
present, showing how ancient geology has shaped modern America and its people.

6) How Will the World End
The Mayans tell us it will happen next year, on 21st December to be precise. And terrible recent
events from Indonesia through Haiti to Japan seem, to some, evidence of impending global doom. But
just how likely is a global apocalypse - from a scientific point of view? When will it happen, if at
all? Where? And how? Samuel L. Jackson hosts this CGI spectacular which examines the most likely
ways the world might end, and uses the latest geological, seismic and telescopic devices to put a
number on the likelihood of their occurrence, the timeframe within which they'll take place, and
even the potential casualties. It's almost certainly not going to happen in our lifetimes, nor in
that of any of our children or grandchildren...

7) I Caveman Back to the Stone Age
Were we better off as cavemen? Morgan Spurlock ("Super Size Me" joins nine ordinary men and women
in an attempt to survive in the wild using only stone-age technology. Cold, dehydration, and hunger
threaten to derail the experiment from the The last ten thousand years have seen change on a scale
previously unimaginable. From the first settlements around Ur and Catal Huyuk through the latest
innovations in medicine, technology, travel and connectivity, we live in a world that would be
utterly unrecognizable to our early ancestors. But alongside all this technological change, how much
have we, as humans changed? Our bodies? Our minds? In this extraordinary social experiment, ten
modern humans travel back in time to live like our earliest ancestors.

8) I Caveman the Great Hunt
Eating only what they hunt and gather, wearing only what they tan and weave. With only a cave for
shelter and only each other for company, they will use nothing but paleolitic techniques and
technology as they attempt to survive for a month. Will they rise to the challenge of caveman
living, or race back to their centrally heated, super-connected lives? Welcome to the ultimate
exploration of human evolution and technological advancement. Will they rise to the challenge of
caveman living, or race back to their centrally heated, super-connected lives? Welcome to the

9) Can You Live Forever
Will we one day be able to live forever? If so, when? In 2011, Adam Savage was 43. Now it is the
year 2967 and he is 1000 years old. He looks back on his long life revealing how medical science in
the 21st century transformed his body, creating a supercharged cyber-human, allowing him to love
forever. Along the way, we'll learn about transhumanism, brain downloads, self-regenerating organs,
and full body transplants - all in the name of becoming the world's first 1000 year-old man.looks
