There was an episode in which a question came up somewhat like this:

Who was the most dangerous man in history?

As an answer Stephen told a wonderful story about a scientist who, by accident discovered all kinds of deadly things.
Does this sound familiar to someone?
Can anyone remember the episode or the name of the poor scientist?

Love the show

I know exactly what you're talking about. The guy invented CFCs I think, plus some other stuff. Can't remember his name though.

Greetings Clockworker. If I remember rightly, as was revealed on the tellyprog Mr Midgley met a rather untidy and those who believe in some sort of mystical balance to the world would say appropriate demise. Sorry I'm late my legs were slow.
