QED (BBC Documentary)



QED BBC Documentary

Long running and wide ranging documentary series QED looked at all manner of subjects within, nominally, a scientific framework. Everything from human sexual attraction to spontaneous human combustion to the way meat arrives in our supermarkets was looked at.

Neverless than riveting the series title was Latin for quod erat demonstrandum (which means “”what was to be shown”) but was always somewhat misunderstood by viewers at home. When QED wrapped up in 1998 the same team produced the very similar but more straight forwardly titled Living Proof.

Producers: Alec Nisbett, Liz Tucker, Emma Walker, John Hayes-Fisher, Andrew Thompson
