New online channel Head Squeeze, dedicated to science and technology, has launched on YouTube today, with Northern Irish production company 360 Production producing.

The BBC Worldwide channel, in partnership with Derry-based 360 Production, sees ‘Top gear’ presenter James May present a weekly half-hour show which will explore all things science, technology, current affairs and history-related.

May will be joined by comedians to dissect the week’s news, bringing unique angles to national stories, such as ‘Why can’t the UK cope with the snow?’

In the James May’s Q&A segment, the presenter will ask questions such as ‘What is an itch?’ and ‘Is invisibility possible?’ The Sci Guide will provide audiences with the latest news from the world of science and technology, with science experts on hand to deliver a mash-up of news, while the Number Hub segment will share brain teasers and other number-based entertaining stats.

John Farren, creative director of 360 Production said of the new project: “We are really excited to see what happens when you allow fans to share in shaping the content you are creating. We hope this is first step towards the future of content creation.”

Head Squeeze is available on YouTube from today, and will provide audiences with 30-minute shows per week.

Simon Danker, commercial director of BBC Worldwide’s content and production, said: “Head Squeeze gives us the opportunity to tap in to what is trending in the world of science and technology and satisfy fans’ curiosity for smart content they can talk about and share.”

360 Production is currently looking for production personnel from all departments and all levels to join the Head Squeeze team in Derry.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
