The Story of Science


The BBC launched another great science documentary last night – it really has been a bumper year for science documentaries!

Whilst not still strictly a chemistry programme it is still very interesting and worth mentioning. You do not have to look hard to see that it is full of good TOK links.

The URL to the web page is here, where you will be able to view the programme as well as find more information about the show and forthcoming episodes:

    Hi there!
    Thanks for the information.
    Regrettably I couldn’t watch the video. Once in the BBC site there is a banner saying “not available in your area”.
    I live in Argentina, do you know if there is something we can do here to watch it?
    Best regards,

      Hi Gabriel,

      I suspect this is a copyright problem. I am sorry to hear that you cannot watch the video. Have you tried looking on Youtube or Google videos?
