A series of five 20-minute programmes that investigate the life, works and enduring influence of five scientists - Faraday, Darwin, Mendel, Mendeleev and Hubble.

Description

The charismatic Adam Hart-Davis investigates the life and work of five scientists – Faraday, Darwin, Mendel, Mendeleev and Hubble – whose ideas produced great leaps in our scientific understanding.

  • How did they make their discoveries?
  • Why were their ideas so often resisted?
  • And what do their stories tell us about the nature of scientific enquiry?

One of the five programmes, 'Mendeleev's Dream', is a resource to support the OUP 21st Century Science scheme of work for GCSE Additional Science, module C4 Chemical patterns.

Other titles are:

  • Faraday’s famous inventions
  • Darwin’s evolution
  • Mendel and the gene splicers
  • Hubble’s expanding universe
