Naked Scientists exposed on Radio New Zealand


Naked Scientists exposed on Radio New Zealand

Radio New Zealand and BBC Radio 5 Live have joined forces to produce two exciting one-hour shows featuring the BBC’s popular ‘Naked Scientists’ team.

Recorded in front of live audiences in both Auckland and Wellington, the events will include live demos and discussions with some of New Zealand’s leading scientists, all with the usual Naked Scientists twist.

Naked Scientist Dr Chris Smith and Radio New Zealand’s This Way Up presenter, Simon Morton, will be co-hosting the shows in front of live audiences in the two cities, showcasing the best in New Zealand science and technology to the world.

Simon Morton says he’s stoked to be co-presenting two live science shows with The Naked Scientists' founder Dr Chris Smith:

“We've worked with Chris for 3 years; when we first spoke to him about therapeutic tickling, he tickled his daughter on air to explain how humans respond. We knew then he was a keeper, with a knack for bringing science to life. Since then he's regularly reported for This Way Up on the latest science news from around the world.

These live shows are a great opportunity to show off the latest Kiwi science and technology to a global audience of millions."

And Chris Smith says he is looking forward to being back in New Zealand: " The Naked Scientists have a lot of loyal Kiwi listeners and it's going to be fantastic to meet them and broadcast to the world some of the best science going on in Auckland and Wellington. Despite my excitement, I promise to keep my clothes on..."

The shows will be broadcast on Radio New Zealand National 101FM with the first going out live on Saturday 9th August between midday and 1.00 pm. Material from both shows will be featured on BBC Radio 5 Live and Australia’s ABC networks and details are available online: http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/naked-science
