Telomeres were first recognized in the late 1930s as important structures on chromosome ends. In the 1970s the sequence of these structures was identified in the ciliated protozoa Tetrahymena by Elizabeth Blackburn. In the 1980s telomerase was discovered as an enzyme that elongates telomeres and compensates for natural telomere shortening. Carol Greider, Director of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Johns Hopkins University, discusses the journey from these curiosity driven discoveries to the appreciation of the role of telomeres in human disease. Recorded on 03/05/2014.

Heligoland, Germany's outpost on the high-seas, is an important nesting site for seabirds. But the seabirds have a new enemy against which they have no natural defenses. Many seabirds use whatever they can find as material for their nests - normally seaweed. But increasingly, they're picking up bits of plastic trash floating on the sea, mostly scraps of fishing nets. But once a bird gets tangled up in them, it has little hope of getting out. Other seabirds go in search of food on the open sea. They gobble up whatever they find, but increasingly, what they find is plastic trash. The deluge of garbage has now reached the deepest depths and remotest corners of Earth's oceans.

Telomeres are the chromosomes end-part, that are needed to protect chromosome ends. Due to the way chromosomes are copied, these telomeres shorten with each round of cell division. This shortening is kept in check by the enzyme telomerase which elongates telomeres. However because of the limited amount of telomerase, telomere shorten with age in humans. People who cannot effectively elongate telomeres may show manifestations of a Telomere Syndrome, which include age-related diseases such as bone marrow failure, immune senescence and pulmonary fibrosis. Carol Greider, 2009 Nobel Laureate and professor at Johns Hopkins University, discusses how the seemingly benign structure on chromosome ends can underlie human disease. Recorded on 03/04/2014.

Bobsleds can hit speeds of up to 150 km per hour and even the tiniest wrong move can cause the sled to go hurtling off the tracks. Getting a top time is a question of honed skill. Pilots have to ensure that the sled's runners run as straight as possible to cut down on friction. Figure skaters run into similar problems when they pirouette. In both disciplines, natural laws play an important role in the end result. Metin Tolan from the University of Dortmund explores the physics behind the Olympics.
