Science documentries


The Fabric of the Cosmos

The Fabric of the Cosmos, a four-hour documentary series based on the book by renowned physicist and author Brian Greene, the author of The Elegant Universe.
In each of the four episodes, Brian Greene explores a different subject of physics research: Space, Time, Quantum physics and the Multiverse theory.

Here Be Dragons

Here Be Dragons, is a documentary about critical thinking. Explaining how the vast majority of the population will accept dragons, or their logical equivalents, than to actually try to learn and understand the principle of how things actually work, this documentary is an excellent introduction to critical thinking.
Here Be Dragons is written and presented by Brian Dunning, host and producer of the Skeptoid podcast, author of Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena, and Executive Producer of The Skeptologists.

An anthropological introduction to YouTube

This is a lecture presented by Michael Wesch at the Library of Congress, June 23rd 2008.
Professor Wesch is teaching Digital Ethnography at Kansas State University and his lecture here provides us with an interesting insight to one of the most important websites of today, YouTube, and how it changed and developed over time.
It also presents YouTube as an incredibly powerful medium that everyone can reach from their homes, with all the consequences this has on the way we live and understand the world today. Very informative and revealing…

What Is Reality?

BBC Horizon’s documentary on the nature of reality, titled What Is Reality, delivers lots of fascinating concepts such as the Holographic principle, the search for Higg’s Boson and the nature of black holes to name a few. While a bit too dramatic at times, this show is full of information and does a good job of explaining current scientific trends to its viewers.

Cracking the Colour Code

Why is the sky blue? Why do leaves turn yellow in autumn? And why does red play so powerful a role in so many cultures? Is colour real or is it just a construct of our brains?
Drawing on the latest scientific findings and technology, Cracking the Colour Code is a series for people who are seeking answers to many of the questions that relate to colour and who, at the same time, wish to enjoy the incredible diversity and sensation that colour has to offer in our world. While colour is a child of science and physics, it triggers within us a host of emotional, intuitive and intellectual responses – deeply rooted within ourselves and our culture.
The series is both food for the intellect and the senses – delivered as a carefully arranged and orchestrated feast, yet one that is playful and provocative.

Destiny in Space

Destiny in Space gives viewers an exciting glimpse into the future of space exploration. Featuring giant-screen images of the space shuttle in orbit around the Earth and thrilling fly-overs of Mars and Venus.
This is a truly scientific documentary gem here. Full of information about current and future space technologies, Destiny in Space gives us realistic opportunities for mankind to expand into space.
An IMAX(R) camera deployed via satellite provides rare views of the shuttle, in its entirety, orbiting 200 miles above Earth.

The Brain: Our Universe Within

This Discovery Channel documentary explores the depths of the human mind, its mechanisms of reasoning and awareness that we are all born with, as well as its evolution over the ages.
Hosted and narrated by Canada’s legendary scientist, Dr. David Suzuki.

Brave New World with Stephen Hawking

Brave New World is a show about our future and the technological advances that await us. Except Stephen Hawking of course, many more science celebrities are featured in this show, such as Richard Dawkins and Jim Al-Khalili.
Only the first two episodes are available for now.

Human Body: Pushing the Limits

I posted the fourth episode of this show some time ago, but finally here’s the complete series with all 4 episodes. It has interesting information coupled with great presentation and CGI. Quite surprising for a Discovery Channel production :)

Faster than the Speed of Light?

In September 2011, an international group of scientists has made an astonishing claim – they have detected particles that seemed to travel faster than the speed of light.
In this film, Professor Marcus du Sautoy explores one of the most dramatic scientific announcements for a generation. In clear, simple language he tells the story of the science we thought we knew, how it is being challenged, and why it matters.
