How Hacks Work is a fun light-hearted series that looks at the best, worst and weirdest ways to solve everyday issues where an unusual item or idea could come to the rescue!

Using footage from YouTubers and the viewing public, How Hacks Work features a unique panel of comedians and scientists who come together to deconstruct the most talked about and hilarious ‘How To…’ videos from around the world. The panel offer insights into the science behind these hacks, breaking them down into entertaining bitesize chunks, as they are brought to life through real-life demonstrations by extreme engineering expert Mike Sansom and his “human guinea pig”, comedian Stephen Grant.
