A little taste of what Dr Jack’s been up to over the past few years. “The Tech Show” has aired across Europe, Africa and the Middle East on DISCOVERY SCIENCE since the summer of 2011. Three monthly appearances on ITV‘s “This Morning” over the summer of 2011 helped Jack to get to grips with making the brain engaging on live television, which came in very handy for a recent appearance on Channel 4‘s “Sunday Brunch” show. 2011 also saw the launch of “Plain Jane” on MTV which airs across the whole world and has been recommissioned for 2012. Dr Jack’s role on this show is rather unusual: boosting self-confidence in young ladies who find the dating game extremely nerve-wracking. By providing insight into what the brain is up to in a variety of date-training scenarios, Jack arms the girls with the knowledge they need to feel in control and on top of their game.
Some old chestnuts have also survived the cut: including clips from “Body Language Secrets” on SKY, “The People Watchers” on BBC2 and “Technology For Life” films made by the IET for use in schools across the nation.
Highlights from neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis’ first 3 years in television. As well as science consultancy for the Emmy award winning documentary “The Living Body” on National Geographic / Channel 4 and Britain’s Best Brain on Channel 5, Jack has presented several TV series. Most recently Jack co-presented a prime-time SkyOne series called Body Language Secrets which explored the themes of selling, attraction, winning, laughter, power, lying and money. People Watchers (2008) was a BBC2 series that explored the quirks of social psychology through various hidden camera experiments. In his role as the Face of Faraday 2008 Dr Jack presented 4 short films which aired on Teacher’s TV and were centred around the theme Technology for Life. These films were shown, in class, to school children all over the United Kingdom in an effort to encourage them to pursue careers in STEM subjects (i.e. science, technology, engineering and maths.) The footage of Jack with David Ginola and from the modelling shoot were from Naked Britain – another prime time SkyOne series that took a lighthearted look at British attitudes to nudity. Nothing to do with science, but a good opportunity to hone the old interviewing skills nonetheless. [Coming soon: Dr Jack is now the resident neuroscientist on ITV1‘s flagship magazine show This Morning where he presents live monthly items for the brand new “Don’t Be A Slave To Your Brain” strand. The Tech Show on Discovery Science is Jack’s first solo presenting gig to air across multiple continents; beaming out across Europe, Africa and the Middle East throughout 2011]
