This week it's an insect special with Dr Tim Cockerill! They may be small, but that doesn't stop them from being great. Join us to hear all about his fascinating research in Borneo and Papua New Guinea, how spiders use electrostatic attraction to catch their prey and what a real flea circus involves. Plus an explosive demonstration for how some insects get their water, and our discovery of what the UK's favourite insect is.
