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
