Germany looks set to fail its target for measles vaccination and we want to know: what do you do if mandatory vaccination isn't the go? Also: you and Industry 4.0. And the Parisian lovelock selfie campaign that's no bridge to a tourist's heart.
Spectrum: the gamification of code
Straight outta Gamescom 2014: a special on coding. You're no slave to your computer, are you? So use it to code! This program also features five teenagers, who generously agreed to answer questions while waiting to game.

Ebola: is now the best time to experiment with clinically untested drugs? Also: Europe's class action against Facebook (on privacy and data protection). And are you selling your soul for 15 minutes of smartphone fame?

If you think solar power comes down to slapping a few panels on your roof, we're here to tell you, there's a science to it. Also, the EU kicks off another code for kids initiative… And sex selection: which side are you on?
Spectrum: Noise and naked selfies!
