BBC’s Bang Goes the Theory returns for its sixth series and comes to Broadstairs to look at engines, explore why petrol costs so much, and look at the alternatives, such as homemade bio fuel.

In the first episode of the series you can find out how an engine works and watch the team race two motorbikes, both powered by homemade bio fuels. This is a must watch for all science lovers and petrol heads!

The popular science magazine series has been running since 2009 and is co-produced by the BBC and Open University.  The show is presented by Liz Bonnin (Autumnwatch), Dallas Campbell (The Gadget Show) Jem Stansfield (Scrapheap Challenge), and Dr. Yan Wong. They examine how science shapes the world around us and test scientific theory with various experiments.

Broadstairs is a beautiful seaside town which boasts a sandy beach lined with traditional beach huts. It  also has a very busy high street with a wide range of shops, from mainstream to independent stores, lots  of restaurants and plays host to several annual festivals including The Broadstairs Dickens Festival in June and Broadstairs Folk Week in August.

The new series of Bang Goes the Theory starts on Monday 12th March 2012 at 19:30 on BBC1.
