The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is the biggest science experiment ever built.  Scientists from all over the world are heading to CERN with the aim of recreating particles from the beginning of the universe.

Dr Brian Cox takes us on a scientific journey from the discovery of the electron and the birth of particle physics, via the discovery of quarks, to the building of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
