Dramas like Victoria, lifestyle programmes like the award-winning The Great British Bake-Off, their blue-chip natural history programmes like Blue Planet II, and the ever popular irreverent Top Gear, consistently top the charts as the most-watched programmes by unifi's Ultimate Pack subscribers, on both BBC Player and unifi TV.

Harith Iskander explores and explains the science in everyday life using reason, logic and rationale and science in this BBC Earth original commission. Some of the themes explored in the series are food, health and fitness, sport, anatomy and technology. Fast-paced and packed with information, Harith threads these stories together in his inimitable light, almost tongue-in-cheek manner through his running commentary and funny one-liners. Popular myths like durians and alcohol will kill you and MSG is bad for you are just some topics covered in the new series. 

Got Science? is set to premier on BBC Earth on Thursday 11th September 2018 at 8.05pm and will be available on BBC Player at the same time.
