BBC2 wades into sewage science doc

The Secret Science of Sewage follows The Secret Life of Landfill: A Rubbish History

UK public broadcaster BBC2 has commissioned a documentary exploring the science of sewage for its science strand Horizon.

Produced by Zinc Media Group’s Tern Television in partnership with The Open University, The Secret Science of Sewage is the follow-up to The Secret Life of Landfill: A Rubbish History.

The 1×60’ doc will study the biology, chemistry, natural history and social history of human waste from within the pools and tanks of one of the UK’s largest and most technologically advanced sewage works, in Birmingham, featuring scientists including Dr George McGavin and Dr Zoe Laughlin.

Harry Bell, MD of Tern Television, said: “Landfill really made a mark, selling from Thailand to Poland and Africa to Canada, as well as being used in secondary schools across the UK for geography A Level syllabus and Open University modules. We hope that The Secret Science of Sewage will make just as much impact.”
