Invisible Worlds: a microscopical journey into the unseen

A live, online show for schools and festivals
Take a journey from everyday life, down into the realm of microscopical wonders with Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist. The adventure begins with things you can almost see but soon you will find yourself in a world totally invisible to the unaided eye. Marty will take you from the very beginnings of microscopy, through hugely magnified insects, bacteria and plants to the most up to date fluorescent techniques demonstrated live, online and with a Q&A session. A show full of stunning images and amazing sights. An in-person version of this show can be watched here.
