A Christmas special episode devoted entirely to the many things that could destroy the earth and humanity. We talk about the Mayan prophecies, the believers, the history, as well as real threats to our survival from space, from technology and from nuclear weapons. Plus we also manage to squeeze in the more localised world ending scenarios of unhealthy eating and the sequel to seminal videogame Elite.
