Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds begins 16th March on BBC1

BBC Press Office announced March 3rd that (quote) Richard Hammond's Invisible Worlds begins 16th March, 3 episodes @ 9pm on BBC1 (unquote).

Just got the confirmation that episode 2 + 3 will be aired the following weeks later at the same time (March 23 + 30). My contribution will be seen in episode 2 on March 23, "Out of Sight". ((quote from BBC)) In Out Of Sight, Richard explores the extraordinary wonders of the world beyond the visible spectrum.

The human eye is a remarkable piece of precision engineering. But beyond the narrow range of light that makes up the familiar colours of the rainbow is a vast spectrum of light that is entirely unseen. In fact, the visible world is just the tiniest sliver of a far greater reality.

Now, through the use of ground-breaking new imaging technologies and state-of-the-art cameras, Richard Hammond takes a journey beyond the visible spectrum, seeing the world, quite literally, in a whole new light. 
Closer to the ground, ultraviolet cameras transform the view of an ordinary flower garden, capturing a dizzy array of hidden patterns and colours – an insect's eye view.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
