Robin Ince explores the scientific ideas hidden within the wonderful world of Dr Seuss.

Comedian Robin Ince enters the wonderful wacky world of Dr Seuss, and uncovers some surprising real world science hidden within these childhood classics. He's joined by scientists and fellow Seuss fans Sophie Scott, Andrea Sella, Mark Miodownick and Adam Rutherford who reveal some of the very real scientific ideas hiding within the seemingly nonsensical worlds and rhymes of Dr Seuss. From "The Cat in the Hat comes Back" to "The Lorax" and "Oh the Places You'll Go" Robin and his team of scientists reveal how ideas about the environment, scale, chemistry, genetics and psychology, can all be found within some very well known favourites, and why they think Dr Seuss, perhaps surprisingly, thought like a scientist.

Producer: Alexandra Feachem.
