The Royal Institute Christmas Lectures are all about inspiring children, as they are the future scientists, engineers, artists, entrepreneurs. This year the lectures are titled Sparks Will Fly: How to hack your home. This evening was the first of the 2014 series of lectures.

Danielle George looks at the light bulb to show how to hack, adapt and transform technologies found in the home to have fun and make a difference to the world.
