Look Around You

During the summers, I enjoy listening to the repartee at the speed of light on the Dennis Miller Show. It was there that I learned about the BBC science spoofs entitled Look Around You. The two seasons and associated materials can be found at the Look Around You BBC home website.

I enjoyed the Periodic Table - which has to be examined closely.

The videos are readily available and most easily accessible on YouTube such as this one on maths (as the British are wont to call mathematics), the brain, sulfur and germs.

If you can appreciate British humor, you are likely to go from dead-panned facial expressions to gut-busting laughing your face off. You might never watch NOVA or the Discovery Channel in the same way again. (I wish they'd do one on Darwin in the same manner.)
