Úna Ní Fhlatharta (Corp + Anam (Body and Soul) reports from various locations giving us a glimpse of places of interest e.g Greenwich meridian, Birr Castle, Blackrock Observatory to name a few. We also meet An t-Ollamh Ullamh (The ever-ready Professor) and his assistant Aodh in short B&W silent skits.

Science Guy is an entertaining science series that offers an enjoyable, visual & funny insight into science & the environment. Each episode explores a different science theme, drawing on the Irish Primary School Curriculum, in an exciting and innovative way. Presenter Peadar Ó Goill introduces each episode with the question of the day. Assisted by our reporter Caitríona Ní Chualáin and young guests in the studio, by visiting venues, setting up science experiments and getting to know the Scientist of the Day, we arrive at an answer to the question.
