Astronomers have long tried to understand our place as tiny specs in the vastness of the universe. But there is another expanse of the universe to explore, a bizarre realm in which we are giants, the wired world of the very small. This is a journey into the heart of matter, a journey down the biggest rabbit hole in history… a journey smaller than you can see, smaller than an atom, where nothing is what it seems… into a wonderland which seems far removed from reality… down to the very smallest structure of the universe. The journey to find the smallest thing may take us into another universe altogether. And the bottom of the rabbit hole, we may find that our universe is just one of many.

Men and women - for centuries people have argued ferociously about whether or not we are born with different brains. Now, it seems we are getting close to an answer. With new technologies scientists have recently identified certain differences in the brains of men and women. Differences that could help explain perceived strengths and weaknesses. But the research is controversial and raises difficult questions. This episode searches the truth behind myths. It will be testing the science, and challenging own stereotypes.

With exclusive behind-the-scenes access, Horizon follows the highs and lows of an extraordinary story in particle physics. In June 2015, teams at CERN started running the large hadron collider at the highest energy ever. Rumours quickly emerged that they were on the brink of a huge discovery. A mysterious bump in some data suggested a first glimpse of a brand new particle that could change our understanding of how the universe works. A new particle could hint at extra dimensions and help us understand the very beginning of the universe - but first the team has to find it.
