Irish Host To Front New Tomorrows World

 

Updated : Jul 13, 2009

Irish TV beauty and science expert Liz Bonnin has been picked to front a BBC show that is being heralded as the new Tomorrow's World.

The Trinity College graduate is among of a team of presenters on the station's new prime time science programme, Bang Goes the Theory.

The BBC has ambitions of returning to the heyday of Tomorrow's World, while Liz simply describes the project as her "dream job".

The star, who has been seen on shows like Science Friction and Top of the Pops, has a degree in biochemistry and a masters in wild animal biology.

"Bang Goes The Theory is quite literally my dream job," she said.

"I get to spend my time finding out about the science that makes our world go round, as well as meeting the people behind incredible discoveries and ground-breaking innovations."

Liz said she always loved science at school and that it was "a bit of a cliche" that children never liked science.

Bang Goes the Theory launches on Tuesday with a live special featuring a giant contraption made of everyday objects that Liz and fellow presenters Dallas Campbell, Jem Stansfield and Dr Yan Wong will take turns driving.

Liz explained the programme would have a "hands-on" approach to science in a bid to make the subject appeal to all ages according to the Herald.

The show, to be broadcast over 10 weeks in a 7.30pm slot, is the BBC's first attempt to put a popular science show into a prime slot since its Tomorrow's World wound up in 2003, after a 38-year run.

At its peak, that show had 10 million viewers.

Over the years, it featured presenters like Carol Vorderman and gave the public its first look at new technologies like the breathalyser and the compact disc.

"We are harking back to Tomorrow's World and how popular that was for kids, their parents and their grandparents," Liz said.

"The icing on the cake is working with Dallas, Jem and Yan who are thankfully as nutty around the edges as I am -- I love them to bits.

"We are truly passionate about science and I hope this show will make our viewers equally so."
