Humans have caused massive changes to the natural balance of ecosystems around the globe. This clip examines some of the most dramatic and destructive ways in which people have impacted ecosystems – covering climate change, pollution,...Show More
Biogeochemical Cycles

Biogeochemical Cycles

Environmental Systems

Our planet has four spheres – the lithosphere, biosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere. This clip provides an overview of vital biogeochemical cycles that occur across the four spheres, including the nitrogen, phosphorous, water, and carbon...Show More
Estuaries

Estuaries

Life in the Sea

Estuaries… many of us live on or near an estuary and maybe use it for boating or fishing or swimming, or even just for the view. Estuaries are often at the heart of coastal cities. But what’s their story? What’s happening under the water...Show More
The Lymphatic System

The Lymphatic System

Life Processes

This video teaches students about the lymphatic system. Students will learn about the various lymphatic vessels and the important role that they play in our body.
The Valves of the Human Heart

The Valves of the Human Heart

Life Processes

‘The Valves of the Human Heart’ explains the different valves controlling how blood flows in the heart during a heartbeat. Students will learn about why these valves are important to ensure that blood only moves in one direction.
The Cardiac Cycle

The Cardiac Cycle

Life Processes

The cardiac cycle explores the different phases in a heartbeat. This video will introduce students to the events that occur during a heartbeat, and why they produce different sounds.
The Major Blood Vessels of the Human Heart

The Major Blood Vessels of the Human Heart

Life Processes

In this video, students will learn about the different functions of the various blood vessels that make up the human heart.
Gaseous Exchange in Lungs and Tissues

Gaseous Exchange in Lungs and Tissues

Life Processes

This video explain how carbon dioxide gas and oxygen gas are exchanged in our lungs and tissues due to the process of diffusion.
Aerobic Respiration

Aerobic Respiration

Life Processes

This video will introduce students to aerobic respiration. They will also learn about glycolysis, Kreb’s cycle, and the electron transport chain.
Cells and Their Organelles

Cells and Their Organelles

In-Depth with Cells

Every cell contains unique structures, each with a specific function. This programme contains engaging visuals and addresses important curriculum content, exploring the structure of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. Students will learn about the...Show More
Cell Membranes and Simple Transport

Cell Membranes and Simple Transport

In-Depth with Cells

In order for an organism to stay alive and function, its cells must be able to exchange certain materials with their environment. That means that within an organism’s body, various molecules and compounds move into, and out of, all cells. This...Show More
Types of Cells

Types of Cells

In-Depth with Cells

Every living thing is made up of cells. The broadest classification of these cells is eukaryotic and prokaryotic. This programme contains engaging visuals and addresses important curriculum content, exploring the similarities and differences...Show More
