What is a fart? Do all creatures fart? Why do farts smell? Why do we find them so embarrassing ... and so darned funny?! Broadcaster and obsessive fartologist Stefan Gates tackles these pressing issues in Fartology, the first ever book to take a comprehensive, scientific look at the body's extraordinary methane-making abilities. Stefan looks at the journey from food to fart; the weird science behind intestinal gas; the sounds, smells and all things in between. With farty recipes, musings on the greatest farters in history, farts in literature, and fart euphemisms, Fartology offers mind-blowing, trouser-exploding fun for all the family.
The Starlight Stage
The first new Gastronaut 2019 show is a physics spectacular exploring pressure, combustion, sound and explosive chemical reactions. BBC Gastronaut Stefan Gates and his team are bringing rockets, catapults, big bangs and ridiculously big balloons. It will, quite literally, be a blast.
This is one of the best TV series I've made: a tour around the world's trouble spots (and one that was less troublesome!) meeting people to find out how they survive in times of conflict or hardship. Originally made for BBC2 it's showing throughout July on this digital channel,
