In September 2011, an international group of scientists has made an astonishing claim - they have detected particles that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light. It was a claim that contradicted more than a hundred years of scientific orthodoxy. Suddenly there was talk of all kinds of bizarre concepts, from time travel to parallel universes. So what is going on? Has Einstein's famous theory of relativity finally met its match? Will we one day be able to travel into the past or even into another universe? In this film, Professor Marcus du Sautoy explores one of the most dramatic scientific announcements for a generation. In clear, simple language he tells the story of the science we thought we knew, how it is being challenged, and why it matters.
R U Faster Than a Redneck? is an American TV program on the Speed channel. The concept of the show is simple: volunteers can bring their import cars to the Carolina Motorsports Park Kershaw in Kershaw County, South Carolina, to race them against a selection of American muscle cars. If an import beats the American car in the first two heats and then another in the final, he gets $10,000. The show's host is comedian Jon Reep, and the regular announcer is Ken Squier. The show's stable consists of "full-blown, flannel-wearing, mullet-sporting rednecks" driving an assortment of "classic American muscle cars". Drivers can race stock and specialty cars, but they have to do so on street tires. John and his mullet mafia also make fun of the import drivers.
'Bigger, Better, Faster, Stronger was a New Zealand science-based reality television series broadcast on TV3. Each episode saw the two hosts, James Coleman and Greg Page, work to produce a "new and improved" version of a household appliance or object. At the beginning of each episode, the hosts selected their team from a combined pool of five people, four of whom had skills that were of value to the project, and one of whom did not. They then spent the remainder of the day in a shed producing the new device, before holding competitive tests the following morning. The tests were adjudicated by Kirsten Pederson. Before the series aired, Coleman told news media that the episode in which he attempted to make a clothes drier from a lawnmower engine and an angle grinder was a near-disaster, as "The clothes ended up being distributed in specks of cotton around the laundry and the hooks flew off and embedded themselves around the set," but "Luckily, they didn't kill or blind anyone." The series was nominated for an Aotearoa Film & Television Award in 2011.
