Water may seem ordinary – it pours from our taps and falls from the sky – but you would be surprised at what a profoundly strange substance it is. Without its rebel behaviour, though, none of us would exist. Alok Jha will change the way you look at water – it has shaped life on earth, and connects you and everyone else to the birth (and death) of the universe.
