Script Extract:

Narrator 1: We'd now like to introduce our resident science expert Professor I.M Hip for some cold hard facts that may help you with your explanation.

Professor I.M Hip: Daniel Bernoulli (1700:1782) is best known for his work with air pressure. He discovered that slow moving air goes towards fast moving air. The air coming out of the hair dryer is moving really fast. The air around us in this room is moving rather slowly. So the slow moving air actually pushes towards the fast moving are.

Narrator 1: So professor, are you saying that the air around us is pushing towards the fast air from the hairdryer.

Professor I.M Hip: Precisely.

Narrator 1: So people, now why do you think the balloon stays in the air?
