Nuclear Radiation

Nuclear Radiation

This program is a comprehensive look at radiation that originates in the nucleus of an atom. It covers the history of the discovery of radioactivity, what makes atoms radioactive, and methods for detecting radioactivity. The program also explains...Show More
Multicellular Organisms and Their Nervous Systems

Multicellular Organisms and Their Nervous Systems

Multicellular organisms range from quite basic forms of life to highly complex forms, such as humans. Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things. Unlike single-celled organisms, which have one cell that performs all the functions of...Show More
Biochemistry: The Chemistry of Life

Biochemistry: The Chemistry of Life

Understanding Chemistry in Our World

In this resource, you learn a great deal about the depth to which chemistry explains every part and process related to the human body. As you know, chemistry often deals with small, almost invisible substances, and in this resource you will focus...Show More
Ionic

Ionic

All About Chemical Bonding

Who would have thought that two dangerous elements, such as sodium and chlorine, when bonded together, could create a new and harmless compound known as table salt? In this program we take a fascinating look at ionic bonding. Viewers will...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
Principles and Laws of Motion

Principles and Laws of Motion

Motion has fascinated physicists for centuries, and much of the work done by scientists and mathematicians hundreds of years ago still forms the basis of our understanding of motion. This programme looks at some of the major principles and...Show More
An Introduction to Biodiversity

An Introduction to Biodiversity

Biodiversity - why is it so crucial to our survival and the planets? Biodiversity makes up our many interrelated ecosystems and is something we must strive to sustain. This Australian made, curriculum-fit program explores what biodiversity is,...Show More
Safety in the Senior Science Lab

Safety in the Senior Science Lab

Safety in the Science Laboratory is imperative, not only is it the basic fundamental of a successful learning environment, it is also every student and teachers right to work in a safe environment. This programme is aimed at providing students...Show More
The Role of Enzymes

The Role of Enzymes

Enzymes are proteins which are manufactured by the human body during the process of protein synthesis. Enzymes are catalysts and drive every chemical reaction that takes place in the human body and enable our bodies to be built from proteins,...Show More
Designer Genes: The Science and Ethics

Designer Genes: The Science and Ethics

Since its discovery in 1953, mankind has been increasingly fascinated with DNA, the genetic blueprint. From the selective breeding of plants and animals in agriculture through to the production of recombinant proteins for medical purposes, and...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
Natural Selection: Its Place in Modern Society

Natural Selection: Its Place in Modern Society

Natural Selection is a process which affects every species on Earth, including humans. Many people believe that as members of modern, technological societies we are immune to natural processes because we can modify our environment to suit our...Show More

Electromagnetic Radiation: Wave and Particle Models of Light

Electromagnetic Radiation: Wave and Particle Models of Light

This programme looks at the various properties of light and scientists' attempts to explain them. In centuries past both wave and particle models have been used to understand, explain and predict the behaviour of light. Neither model on its own...Show More
Forensic Science in Action

Forensic Science in Action

In Forensic Science, we delved into the day-to-day activities and tasks of real-life forensic scientists and compared these with typical TV stereotypes. But before you draw a conclusion that specialist forensics work must be dull, let's don our...Show More
The History of Evolution Theory

The History of Evolution Theory

This programme reviews the history of the Theory of Evolution and explains the basic elements of the theory using excellent graphics. It explains what a scientific theory is, and why scientists argue that ID is not science. This debate will no...Show More
Codes of Life: Behaviour Genetics

Codes of Life: Behaviour Genetics

Inside Out

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
Connections: Sensation

Connections: Sensation

Inside Out

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
Episode 2 - Unlocking the Code

Episode 2 - Unlocking the Code

The Gene Code

In this programme, we learn how decoding the genome has led us to begin to understand the very process by which our DNA makes us different; how it makes each one of us on earth unique, how it influences who we are and the traits we...Show More
