In this show, which works like a cross between Mr. Wizard and Monty Python, the science teacher, Beakman answers viewer questions about science. With the help of his assistants Josie and Lester the Rat, he uses various methods like animation, interviews with famous dead people of science and simple experiments to illustrate scientific principles.
