Join Dr. Hugh Hunt, the Cambridge University Engineer who brought you Dambusters, Colditz and the Great Escape on Channel 4 as he points out that spinning things are strange. Why does a spinning top stand up? How does a falling cat always manage to land on its feet? What do ice skaters do to spin so fast? The common thread is gyroscopes, but don´t worry, there won´t be any maths. There are even a few boomerangs - we’re hoping he doesn’t break any windows!
