Shaun of the Dead is almost officially a British classic, but have you ever wondered about the science involved behind it? Me neither until now and now I'm a little obsessed with the idea so we've got a scientist and a couple of comedians to give you a very special science commentary of Edgar Wright's zombie masterpiece:

The Scientist: Karl Byrne
Karl is a virologist and zombie expert, which makes him double cool, and then in his spare time he's a scientific consultant on low-budget zombie movies and organises the Cheltenham Science Festival.

The Comedian: Nat Luurtsema
Nat has a BAFTA nomination. Nat is funny. And Nat loves Zombies. Just in case that isn't enough she's also written books, appeared on the One Show and has her own comedy sketch show, Jigsaw, on Radio 4.

The Host: Helen Arney
Helen is one third of Festival of the Spoken Nerd, presenter for "You Have Been Warned" over on the Discovery Channel and BBC2's Coast, and in charge of making sure nothing catches on fire and the Science Flicktion screenings. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.
