LIFE SOLVED lifts the lid on the latest ideas and discoveries that look set to change our lives.
Every week we’ll bring you a fresh episode featuring cutting-edge research. Find out how this is set to revolutionise the way our world works. We’ll explain how technology and community go hand in hand with the natural world, and how industry and sustainable environments can connect for the benefit of society.
Real research. Real world change.
From your subconscious political behaviour on social media to how we can use tech to get swift diagnosis and treatment for common medical problems, the big ideas are here.
Amazing work taking place at the University of Portsmouth is breaking new ground: In series one of Life Solved we dive into the mental impact of drone warfare on military operators. We’ll explore how Britain’s hot summers could mean forest fires are a big feature of our future. We’ll investigate the huge health implications of little-understood cells in our neurological systems and pick apart the out-dated law that could mean your will is far from watertight.
Subscribe for a new episode every week, and share the big idea #lifesolved
