Mark Miodownik explored why stuff matters at the Cheltenham Science Festival.

Everything is made of something - from everyday objects in our homes to the materials that will shape our future. From the tea-cup to the jet engine and the silicon chip to the paperclip, materials scientist Mark Miodownik demonstrated the inner workings of the man-made world: the miracles of craft, design, engineering and ingenuity that surround us every day.

This event was part of The Times Cheltenham Science Festival 2015.
