A series made for BBC Schools which looks at science and related technology

Pump up the Hype
Sports Shoes are sold on the back of science and technology.
Each new design makes the previous model seem hopelessly out of date.
Nike spends millions of dollars on research and development and prides
themselves on the understanding of the foot.
But do you really get what you pay for?
This programme looks at the science involved in the making of training shoes.
It also (topically) looks into the making of tennis equipment and the use of carbon fibre.
