Bang Goes The Theory (UK)
From exploring the world's most advanced technological breakthroughs to learning how we can test and manipulate scientific principles in our own backyard, this series will put scientific theory to the test. Four presenters – Dallas, Liz, Jem and Dr Yan Wong – will pool their knowledge and their curiosity to put science into action in a series co-produced with The Open University (OU).
Bang’s newest recruit comes with plenty of previous. Maggie anchored the much loved Tomorrow’s World in the 1980's, and has stayed on the pulse of science and technology ever since.
In the last five years she’s reported for BBC Breakfast, Inside Out and BBC Webwise, as well as heading up the BBC’s Digital Switchover and writing for The Guardian.
Maggie’s work has been recognized by some prestigious organizations. In 2008 she created an interactive science and engineering event for teenagers which was awarded Best Engineering Event by the British Science Association in 2010.
At the WISE Awards in 2012 she won the Communication and Outreach category of Women of Outstanding Achievement. In the same year she received an Honorary Doctor of Technology degree from De Montfort University for "bringing a greater understanding of science and technology to the public”.
It’s all experience that puts Maggie in a perfect position to join Liz and Jem in their quest to make sense of your world through science. And she’s as enthusiastic as ever.
