Record-breaking Round Up

av Guinness World Records: Behind The Book | Publicerades 12/23/2019

From the most tattooed man and a 103-year-old skydiver to homemade LEGO limbs and the largest testicle in the animal kingdom, Craig and the team look back over a year of record-breaking at Guinness World Records.

Join Craig for an eggnog or two in The Golden Plover, the virtual pub at GWR HQ. For this annual record-breaking round-up, Craig is joined by Social Media Manager Dan Thorne, who unveils the year's most explosive tweets, YouTube videos and Tik-Tok posts; Life Sciences Record Manager Megan Bruce returns with her favourite skydiving centenarian; Lewis Blakeman introduces us to two record-holders who've used technology to craft ground-breaking prosthetic limbs; Science Editor Ben Hollingum shares with us his favourite robotics record (and reveals that we DO have a record for first human killed by a robot!); and Animals Editor Adam Millward enlightens us on the animal that's spent the longest time in cryobiosis (as in, which creature has spent the longest time frozen before being defrosted and brought back to life... how festive!)
