The Science of Risk

A radical departure from doomsday films of the recent past, RISK is an incisive look at the mysteries of human risk perception in the face of the biggest events of the 21st century. It uncovers the science of risk by exploring the effects of reason versus emotion, statistics versus popular thought, and real versus imagined danger. From terrorism to asteroids to the internet to financial catastrophes, the series is an arresting and revolutionary look at the way we read – and misread – the threats that surround us, and why.

RISK is created with cutting-edge technology in mind: 3D for home use.The series interweaves action experiments that jump off the screen in explosive 3D with expert interviews in exciting locales and visually stunning evocative recreations that allow the science of risk and human fear to come alive.
