In this entertaining series, medically trained Michael Mosley goes on a journey of discovery to see if cutting edge science really can improve his life.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #101
Smart
Michael has an IQ of 135. We're told there are lots of ways we can increase our intelligence - from drugs, to the things we eat and the music we listen to. Can Michael boost his score by 12 points in order to secure a place in Mensa, the society for bright people? Michael meets contestants in the UK Memory Championships to find out. He travels to institutes in America which use training, combined with specific diet and exercise to nurture intelligence in babies. But according to 'America's smartest man' Chris Langan, intelligence is innate. He participates in a neurofeedback session and plays specially designed video games - all in a bid to up his IQ. But will it work?

Episode #102
Stay Awake
We all crave more sleep, but with scientific advancements, do we now really need it? Michael has learned that a new wave of drugs promises to do for sleep what the contraceptive pill did for sex - unshackle it from nature. He goes on a journey to experience what it's like to put aside the conventional eight hours sleep - and keep awake for as long as possible. He meets the world record breaker Tony Wright who can go up to 12 days without sleep; dips into the world of sleep endurance competitions; and in Canada meets a man who claims that a recent pharmaceutical invention, Modafinil, allows him to fully function and work a 20-hour day with just a few naps

Live Forever
Global warming, wars, economic meltdown... While the future of our species seems to be hanging by a thread, the future for individuals looks bright. Michael goes on a journey to the logical conclusion of modern medicine: triumph over death. He visits Cambridge academic Aubrey de Grey who is offering prize money for the scientist who can most effectively rejuvenate ageing mice. But Michael wants more than longevity - he is seeking immortality. He witnesses the application of stem cell work - restoring vision, constructing new organs - which offers the chance of replacing body parts. And using the latest research, some of Michael's cells are made immortal.
