"Brainiac: Science Abuse" (2003) was a British documentary series. Every episode, the presenters would conduct different experiments to prove or disprove a common belief. For example, in one episode, the hosts wanted to see if it was truly possible to run across custard. Sometimes, the presenters would conduct an experiment simply to make something explode. Most of the experiments involved chemistry or physics or, occasionally, biology.
