A special spin-off programme of the BBC Four programme After Life for learners aged 7 – 11 years. A team of young science detectives investigate rot and decay through a series of experiments and activities, assisted by Dr George McGavin. The team find out not just about the bacteria all around us, but the bacteria on our skin, in our mouths and in our stomachs. They look at the life cycle of flies and how they play an important part in the natural process of recycling and composting. They even make their very own rot boxes which they fill with food and leave for six weeks. Featuring microscopic and time-lapse footage of rot from the original After Life programme, Rot Box Detectives highlights the beauty of decay in the natural world.
