MythBusters is a science entertainment television program created by Peter Rees and produced by Australia's Beyond Television Productions for the Discovery Channel. The series is transmitted by numerous international broadcasters, including SBS Australia (New episodes, repeat episodes show on 7mate Australia), and other Discovery channels worldwide. The show's hosts, special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, use elements of the scientific method to test the validity of rumors, myths, movie scenes, adages, Internet videos, and news stories. The show is one of the oldest—and the most popular—on Discovery Channel currently in production, being preceded only by How It's Made and Daily Planet, both in Canada. Since 2006, the show has been overseen by British show-runner Dan Tapster, working out of Sydney, San Francisco and Manchester.
Filming is based in San Francisco, and editing is done exclusively in Artarmon, Australia. Planning and some experimentation take place at Hyneman's workshops in San Francisco; experiments requiring more space or special accommodations are filmed on location, typically around the San Francisco Bay Area and other locations in northern California, going to other states or even countries on occasion when required.

Can a person get stuck to an airline toilet while it's in flight? Is there such a thing as a biscuit bazooka?
Can a poppy-seed bagel tilt the results of a drug test? Can balloons carry a lawn chair? If you cover your body in gold paint, will you be able to breathe? Or could you die from it?
Can you explode a toilet by flushing flammables down the bowl then lighting a match? Do you get wetter running or walking in the rain? Can you really make a "magic bullet" that will not leave evidence behind in its victim?
Can chatting on a cell phone while pumping gas cause the pump to blow up? Will silicone breast implants burst under pressure? Can high-speed CD-ROM players really shatter a CD?
The story of the unlucky construction worker and the barrel of 500 lb. of bricks is tested. Also, you'll see if peeing on the third rail can kill you, along with credit cards not working due to an eel skin wallet.
Jamie and Adam test whether a penny dropped from a skyscraper will embed in concrete and whether it is possible to pick up radio signals through tooth fillings. They also examine several myths surrounding microwave ovens.
Buster tries to survive a drop into a body of water with a hammer, and Jamie's getting buried alive! Also, you'd be surprised by how many cola-related myths are perfect for the Mythbusters.
Jamie and Adam want to see if tongue piercing attract lightning, if they can make a cannon out of a tree, and if drunk people can fool the police.
The Mythbusters see if a car can get so stinky that no one will buy it. Waiting for 2 months for 2 dead pigs to decompose in a car, the want to test raccoon rocket, where a person lighting gasoline in a sewer pipe to eliminate a raccoon but shoots himself out but lives. Looks like a job for Buster!
Jamie and Adam try to escape from Alcatraz using a raft made from raincoats. In between, they test to see if duck quacks can echo and if Red Cross has mind control chips for their patients.
