Look Around You is a spoof science programme that hilariously recreates both the drab, depressing air of 1970s educational television and a bygone world of tedious school science lessons. Each of the 10-minute episodes–or “Modules”–takes the form of a number of surreal and pointless experiments based on a chosen theme ranging from “Water” and “Sulphur” to “Ghosts” and “Brains”.
