The Nano Revolution

It's a universe where scientists explore matter on a scale 80,000 times smaller than a human hair. It's a gigantic global laboratory where scientists converge from all disciplines, and dedicate themselves to observing and manipulating the smallest particles in the natural world.

Thirty years ago, new microscopes first opened the doors to this new dimension and allowed scientists to begin moving individual atoms and molecules. This science of the miniscule is already opening up a new world of possibilities.

Nanotechnology has been called "the next technological revolution". It is said to provide groundbreaking solutions to the most serious problems that threaten our future-it promises faster computers, improved security, longer healthier lives and a cleaner earth.

In a series of short dramas that are interspersed with the documentary content THE NANO REVOLUTION also speculates about the philosophical, political and ethical complexities that might arise as the science continues to evolve. How will the new science impact people's lives 30 or 40 years from now?
