TV: DON'T MISS Mickey gets a bit techie.

Byline: NAOMI McELROY

Scope

Tuesday, 7.00pm, Network 2

SCOPE is Ireland's first ever science programme that manages to bypass the nerd factor.

Instead of geeks with beakers, Scope focuses on the cooler end of the sciences.

There are no men in white suits brandishing Bunsen burners - instead we get bona-fide Irish celebrities.

Each week a famous face comes on to talk about their favourite piece of technology.

Tonight is the turn of You're A Star champ, Donegal's own Mickey Harte.

The singing superstar, soon to be a father again, sings the praises of his latest gadget, a new digital video camera.

It probably comes in handy for filming the antics of his steadily growing family.

Tonight's programme also takes an eye-popping look at the hottest sports around.

Board X is one of the biggest extreme sports, featuring the cream of the skate-boarding and snowboarding world.

Presenter Dannan examines the science needed to get those jaw dropping tricks right.

This series may be aimed at young people but it's bound to be a big hit for all the family.
