Zoe Lyons chooses ideas for future human, taking in suggestions from doctor of neuroscience Dean Burnett, champion rugby player Maggie Alphonsi, the studio audience at Winchester Science Festival and the 'smurf bird' cassowary. We discuss bird brains, horse health monitors and whether it's time for an alternative, doped, Olympics?
