Television's favourite science enthusiast, Adam Hart-Davis is dedicated to engaging public interest in the history and invention behind the technology we take for granted. He has achieved that, to great acclaim, through series such as How London Was Built, Live From Dinosaur Island, Science Shack, Come To Your Senses and several series of Local Heroes, in which he zoomed around the country on a pink-and-yellow mountain bike.
After a spell in publishing, Adam entered broadcasting at Yorkshire Television, where he researched and produced such series as Scientific Eye and Arthur C Clarke's World of Strange Powers. On radio, Adam has presented several science series, including Inventors Imperfect, Inspiration!, Elements of Surprise, and Re-inventing the Wheel.
Adam again conveyed his fascination with science and history in the series What the Romans, Tudors, Stuarts and Victorians Did For Us. He revealed, in the series Just Another Day, the history behind our everyday appliances.
Adam's list of over twenty seven published books includes The Cosmos - A Beginner's Guide and Thunder, Flush and Thomas Crapper (a history of the lavatory). In fact, Adam's interest in all things lavatorial led him to write a book about urine and to join The British Toilet Association.
Adam conveys his many and varied interests and celebrates creativity, scientific heroes, inventors, ghosts, happiness, and, of course, lavatories.
