The History of Science Series (4:56:26)
For 3,000 years, humans have wrestled with the great questions of
existence. This fascinating six-part series explains how our knowledge
of space, matter, energy, and life has expanded and evolved over time.
Viewers learn about many of the household names in science
history—including Galileo, Newton, Darwin, and Einstein—as well as other
geniuses like Tycho Brahe, who dramatically reshaped our conception of
the solar system, and Hennig Brand, the alchemist who helped set a
course for modern chemistry. Insightful and entertaining, each program
reveals how the upheavals of history have combined with invention and
investigation in transforming the human experience.
Real Science Series (1:15:05)
In matters of life and death and moments of thrilling entertainment,
science is a force that makes things happen. A little bit of theory and a
whole lot of action carry viewers through each program of this
stimulating three-part series as they watch real people apply real
science to real-life situations.
Project X: 360 Degrees of Science Series (3:03:05)
Finding its way into every aspect of life, science is a passport to a
hidden and constantly evolving world. This eight-part series offers a
360-degree view of science, from the microscopic arena to the limits of
the known universe. Featuring experts from around the globe, each
high-energy episode visits test labs—as well as test kitchens and test
garages—to illustrate remarkable findings and theories.
F=ma: Physical Science Concepts Series (33:49)
This engaging three-part series defines the elements of Newton’s Second
Law—force, mass, and acceleration—plus related topics such as velocity
and inertia; demonstrates them using basic calculations; and applies
them in real-world examples. Video, animation, graphics, and narration
combine to make this an excellent introduction to this fundamental law
of physics. Correlates to the National Science Education Standards
developed by the National Academies of Science and Project 2061
Benchmarks for Science Literacy from the American Association for the
Advancement of Science.
Science & Music Series (4:57:18)
For every music lover who has ever wondered how music happens, what
Pythagoras meant when he classified music as a branch of mathematics,
this informative and entertaining series of lecture-demonstrations
provides fascinating insights into the relationships between sound and
music. Part of the annual series of Christmas Lectures given each year
at Britain’s Royal Institution, the programs explore the basic science
of the fact that every sound—from the dropping of a pin to the deafening
frenzy of a rock concert—is produced by changes in air pressure. The
resulting waves are perceived by the miraculous ear-brain system as
sensations we understand as sound and music—both apparently objective,
yet intensely subjective phenomena.
