Wash your hands, watch your step and don’t talk to strangers – a mother’s advice should be taken seriously and Discovery Science shows why this September. Deadly diseases lurk on everyday objects and can quickly lead to KILLER OUTBREAKS (Sept. 2). Next, dangerous situations escalate quickly when it comes to Somali pirates and Taliban kidnappers, making it a struggle to GET OUT ALIVE (Sept. 18). Keith Barry uses his powers of perception and persuasion to read the thoughts and control the behaviours of unsuspecting subjects in DECEPTION WITH KEITH BARRY (Sept. 24). Then, white-picket fences hold in SURBURBAN MONSTERS (Sept. 19) that are poised to attack.
