Many aspects of our lives from car batteries to smartphones are dependent on metals and rare elements that are often hidden deep beneath our feet.

How do we find and extract these crucial resources? How do we turn them into the products we use and what impact does this have on our planet? Join us as we go down into the mines to discover just what it takes to find valuable metals and how we will depend on them for a greener future.
