‘Colliding Particles’ is a series of films following just one of the teams of physicists involved in the research at the LHC. The project documents their work at the frontiers of particle physics, exploring the human stories behind the research and investigating the workings of the scientific process itself.

- Gavin is a theoretical particle physicist at the French National Centre for Scientific Research in Paris. He completed his PhD at the Cambridge in 1996, and went on to hold postdoctoral fellowships in Milan and at CERN. His research has mostly been centred on the area of quantum chromodynamics, the theory which describes the behaviour of quarks and gluons. He plays the piano in his spare time.
- Jon is an experimental particle physicist at University College London, and a member of the ATLAS collaboration at the LHC. He completed his doctorate at Oxford in 1992, and worked on the ZEUS experiment at DESY in Hamburg. He now divides his time between CERN and London, where he lives with his wife and 2 children. In his spare time he enjoys skiing and playing the guitar.
- Adam studied at University College London for his undergraduate degree and decided to stay on at UCL for his PhD. Although he currently works at CERN in Switzerland he still tries to spend time back in the UK. In addition to particle physics, he is also works on the Mixxx Digital DJ project and plays 5-a-side football.
