Looking At Your Weird & Wired Future: Perimeter Institute & TVO Show How Quantum Physics May Rock Your World

Waterloo – From deep inside the sewers of Vienna, site of groundbreaking quantum teleportation experiments, to cutting-edge quantum computing labs, to voyages into the minds of the world’s brightest thinkers, including renowned British scientist Stephen Hawking, The Quantum Tamers: Revealing Our Weird and Wired Future is a new television documentary that will air October 20th and shares the coming quantum technological revolution.

“The Quantum Tamers presents the weirdness and wonder of the quantum world in a strikingly original, accessible and engaging visual style. It graphically conveys why quantum physics is so useful and why it holds the key to futuristic information technologies," says Neil Turok, Director of Perimeter Institute. "I think you will find yourself challenged and amazed, just like the scientists themselves. Sharing in their enthusiasm for research, discovery and innovation is part of the fun.”
Shot in High Definition in 16 cities in 6 countries, the documentary blends the observations of 19 top international scientists with dance and animation sequences to convey abstract ideas in highly visual ways and previews some amazing technologies of tomorrow.

Canadian Playback – Tuesday, October 20th at 10:00pm
In Canada, you can enjoy the program on Tuesday, October 20th at 10:00 pm (EDST) in a newly created science strand on TVO. The TVO signal can be found across Canada on Bell TV channel 265 or Star Choice channel 353. You will also find TVO on Channel 2 in most areas of Ontario.

In addition to the documentary premiering on TVO in October, it will be screened in the USA at the New York United Film Festival, in Europe at the prestigious Pariscience festival, and in Canada at Perimeter Institute’s Quantum to Cosmos Festival.
