Naked Science devotes each episode to a topic from the world of science. Sometimes dealing with very complex or abstract subjects, the series uses interesting devices to make the topics understandable. Exploration of the planets of our solar system and deep space are favorite topics, as are stories about our planet, both above and below the surface. High tech graphics and computer animation are used to illustrate the stories.
