'What are they really like? For many people, scientists seem scarily clever. And so they see science as “off limits”. In fact most scientists are pretty regular people. They have different personalities and outlooks on their life and work. But they don’t often get the opportunity to talk about them. So I have made a film by interviewing six scientists who are at different stages of their careers. They share their stories about how they got into science and talk about why they like doing it and what they think it takes to be a good scientist. Most importantly of all, they reveal their favourite type of cheese.'
