Doordarshan's new series A Question Of Science will fulfill viewers scientific curiosity and the chase for answers in a 26 part series on the most exciting and cutting-edge research and innovation happening across India’s science labs and technology hubs.

Each 22-24 minute episode introduces viewers to a team of researchers, working to solve a pressing problem of science. Doordarshan traverse a wide range of fields – from genetics to particle physics, from wildlife conservation to radio-astronomy, from biomedical engineering to agricultural innovation – every aspect of India’s scientific landscape will be explored.

This quest took A Question Of Science across the length and breadth of India and beyond (including CERN at Geneva). In each story, viewers will meet the researchers and understand the basic questions they are trying to answer. Using simple scientific explanations, analogies and state-of-the-art 2D/3D animation to bring the science alive. The show will also delve into how science is ‘done’ – the ups and downs, the challenges, triumphs and failures of scientific pursuit.

An episode on particle physics will show India’s contribution to the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, the India-based neutrino observatory. Also a wildlife conservation episode will show underwater acoustics in conservation of Gangetic river dolphin, technologies at LaCones, conservation of Olive Ridley turtles and more.

Stem cell innovation in restoring corneal sight, artificial heart pumps and heart valves, sleep research, brain bank will be highlighted in an episode of medicine and biomedical engineering.

Another show on agriculture will talk about improved strains of high-yield rice using DNA marker technology, apomixis in seed production An array of topics like astronomy and space, industrial
innovation, new-Age energy, stratospheric balloon technology, DNA Fingerprinting, insect Flight will also be covered.
