Carbohydrates, Lipids and Nucleic Acids

With the aid of high quality graphics and animations, this programme covers three major categories of biological macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids and the nucleic acids RNA and DNA. It clearly explains the structure and biological roles of...Show More
Catching the Sun: The Physics of Solar Energy

Catching the Sun: The Physics of Solar Energy

As the world increasingly focuses on alternatives to the carbon-emitting fossil fuels that we have relied on for over a century, scientists are continually developing more efficient methods to collect the sun, as harnessing solar energy is...Show More
Cellular Energy and Metabolism

Cellular Energy and Metabolism

Plants obtain energy through photosynthesis, and use respiration and enzymes in their metabolic processes. The three concepts below are clearly explained with excellent experiments and computer animation which shows what is happening visibly...Show More
Changes of State

Changes of State

In 'Changes of State', we look at the differences between solids, liquids, and gases, as well as why things change state when they absorb or lose heat energy. We also look at the strange example of carbon dioxide, which doesn't follow the same...Show More
Changing Equilibrium Systems: Changing the Temperature

Changing Equilibrium Systems: Changing the Temperature

What happens when you turn up the heat in an equilibrium? This video demonstrates how changing temperature affects reaction rates in accordance with Le Chatelier’s principle. Students will observe the colour of a solution of cobaltous chloride...Show More
Changing Equilibrium Systems: Increasing the Amount of a Product

Changing Equilibrium Systems: Increasing the Amount of a Product

What happens when you add more product to an equilibrium? This video demonstrates how an increase in products affects reaction rates in accordance with Le Chatelier’s principle. Students will observe how the appearance of a solution of sodium...Show More
Changing Equilibrium Systems: Increasing the Concentration of a Reactant

Changing Equilibrium Systems: Increasing the Concentration of a Reactant

What happens when you add more reactant to an equilibrium? This video demonstrates how an increase in reactants affects reaction rates in accordance with Le Chatelier’s principle. Students will observe how the colour of a solution of ferric...Show More
Changing Equilibrium Systems: Increasing the Pressure

Changing Equilibrium Systems: Increasing the Pressure

What happens when you increase the pressure on an equilibrium? This video demonstrates how changing pressure affects reaction rates in accordance with Le Chatelier’s principle. Students will observe the colour of a gaseous mixture of nitrogen...Show More
Changing Equilibrium Systems: Removing a Product

Changing Equilibrium Systems: Removing a Product

What happens when you remove products from an equilibrium? This video demonstrates how a decrease in the amount of product affects reaction rates in accordance with Le Chatelier’s principle. Students will observe how the appearance of a...Show More

Chemistry of Carbon: A Very Versatile Atom

From charcoal to diamonds, carbon is essential to a multitude of products—and to life itself. This program illustrates the mechanics of the carbon cycle, explores some of the special properties of the ubiquitous element, and looks at the...Show More
Choosing What to Investigate

Choosing What to Investigate

Exploring the broad issue of urban light pollution through the work of four dedicated researchers, this programme reveals how and why each scientist chose their niche and turned it into a measurable research question. Middle and Senior-secondary...Show More
Classification Systems

Classification Systems

The classification system is the arrangement of living things, categorised by their different characteristics - an organised understanding of the natural world we live in. Recently this system has been further refined using studies of DNA. In...Show More
Codes of Life: Behaviour Genetics

Codes of Life: Behaviour Genetics

Mark Newman and Gerald Levey are identical twins, separated at birth. They share the same genes, but were raised by different parents in different environments. In this investigative programme we examine studies of separated twins and adopted...Show More
Collecting the Evidence

Collecting the Evidence

Experiments come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have special considerations and constraints that need to be meticulously planned for before any field or lab work can begin. Ideal viewing before undertaking their own STEM investigation,...Show More
Competing Equilibria

Competing Equilibria

How is chemical equilibrium important for cellular respiration? This video explains how two competing equilibrium reactions involving haemoglobin are at work in the process of cellular respiration. Clear explanations of this life-or-death example...Show More
Connections: Sensation

Connections: Sensation

A solitary figure walks on the beach at dawn. Although he is alert to his surroundings, his sensory systems take in only a fraction of the energy that envelops him. That which does reach the receptor cells is captured and converted into signals...Show More
Considering the Evidence

Considering the Evidence
