WHY ARE WE HERE?

Today, science says it has found the rules which explain everything, from particles to galaxies, from genes to our minds. But the explanation comes at a cost, for the rules, some scientists say, have no meaning.

Could we really be creatures made to see and seek meaning in a universe where none exists? In this series, Oxford Physics Professor Ard Louis is joined by distinguished science documentary filmmaker and presenter David Malone. They travel to India, Senegal and the United States to meet some of the world’s best physicists, mathematicians, philosophers, neuroscientists and biologists to discuss and debate questions about meaning and the nature of the universe.
