In a quest to unearth a genius idea, Dave Gorman, with the help of special guests Paul Daniels, Richard Madeley, John Fortune, Neil Innes and Stewart Lee, peruses a parade of proposals, be they innovations, gadgets, gizmos, philosophies or follies, in an attempt to sort the worthy from the worthless, the inspired from the insipid and decide which pitch wins the legendary Genius trophy. Ideas proposed in this first series include the use of laughing gas to quell rioters; bubble wrap filled with helium (an ideal stress buster, plus cheaper postage); breathalysers on mobile phones to stop you making regrettable calls; a 99p coin; edible fruit labels; genetically engineered mini-elephants as pets; and running the House of Commons by the rules of Just a Minute. If you've ever had an ingenious invention, a sublime plan for solving problems both small and large, or a twisted scheme for making the world a better, or more interesting, place then Genius is the midwife to your brainchild.
