Frederick P. Brooks

360 Revolution
on:
Join computer pioneers and National Medal of Technology awardees Erich Bloch, Fred Brooks, Jr. and Bob Evans with current IBM technology chief Nick Donofrio for a conversation about the extraordinary System/360 project. IBM launched System/360 on April 7, 1964. Many consider it the biggest business gamble of all time. At the height of IBM's success, Thomas J. Watson, Jr. bet the company's future on a new compatible family of computer systems that would help revolutionize modern organizations. Get a behind-the-scenes view of the tough decisions made by some of the people who made them, and learn how the System/360 helped transform the government, science and commercial landscape.

Einstein made simple
on: sciencelive
What has relativity got to do with real life? How can you make time run slowly? Is Brownian motion any use to anyone? And what has the photoelectric effect done for the world at large? This 45 minute show celebrates 100 years since Einstein wrote his three most famous papers in 1905, and changed scientific thinking.

Ian Evett

Logical forensic inference: Is the law an ass?
on: sciencelive
Ian Evett from the Forensic Science Service continues the 'Maths in Crime' lecture series with a look at the courts. When scientific evidence is presented to a jury, what statistics are given to allow them to assess the information, and what can those statistics say about the guilt or innocence of the accused? The handling of probability, particularly relating to scientific evidence, argues Ian, is a delicate issue not yet mastered in our judicial system.

Stephen Ashworth

Fun with Slime
on: sciencelive
Matt Cunningham is shown how to make slime by Stephen Ashworth from the UEA School of Chemical Sciences. The easy to follow receipe for slime is shown. We discover how we can measure slime's gloopiness and stickiness and how this helps us understand concepts such as molecular chains and viscosity.

Barton Zweibach
MIT
String Theory for Pedestrians Part II
on: CERN
In this 3-lecture series I will discuss the basics of string theory, some physical applications, and the outlook for the future. I will begin with the main concepts of the classical theory and the application to the study of cosmic superstrings. Then I will turn to the quantum theory and discuss applications to the investigation of hadronic spectra and the recently discovered quark-gluon plasma. I will conclude with a sketch of string models of particle physics and showing some avenues that may lead to a complete formulation of string theory.

Eric Mjolsness
University of California
Model Reduction for Parameter Estimation
on:
stimating parameters in biochemical network models is a central but often difficult problem. A general approach that may be worth developing further is first to seek simplified or 'reduced' models with fewer dynamical degrees of freedom, estimate parameters for the reduced models, and then use that information to constrain the corresponding parameters in the full model.

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Speaker: Richard Feynman
Time: 50 minutes

Fifty minutes of PURE Feynman! This is the original Horizon Nova interview - essential for any Feynman fan... and for everyone else too!
THE PLEASURE OF FINDING THINGS OUT was filmed in 1981 and will delight and inspire anyone who would like to share something of the joys of scientific discovery. Feynman is a master storyteller, and his tales -- about childhood, Los Alamos, or how he won a Nobel Prize -- are a vivid and entertaining insight into the mind of a great scientist at work and play.
'The 1981 Feynman Horizon is the best science program I have ever seen. This is not just my opinion - it is also the opinion of many of the best scientists that I know who have seen the program... It should be mandatory viewing for all students whether they be science or arts students.' - Professor Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Prize for Chemistry
