Physics and the personal
11 August 2016 | by GwydionMWSee all my reviews

This series cleverly mixes stories about people in the current world with the deep physics that is behind many things.

Snowflakes, tidal waves, volcanoes, a great diversity of things. And also people - he showed a competition for people climbing on each other to make the biggest pile. How they naturally form patterns.

Also a horse race in Sicily to show principles of animal movement. And a 'smoker' near the surface in the seas around Iceland, illustrating how life probably started.

I was particularly impressed with how he went diving in a bright-red diving suit, and showed how its colour became black when he went deep under water, where red light was absorbed.
