Top Five Chemistry Films....

I've asked some of our regular viewers to list their top five videos from the Periodic Table of Videos (we've posted more than 200).

I thought it might be fun - and it's always useful to know what people do and don't like.

The first contribution comes from regular viewer Sarah, known on YouTube as CoolMinty and on Twitter as @SarahScientist

Here are her five choices in "no particular order".

1. CHRISTMAS SPECIAL 2008



Sarah says: "The Christmas Special with the Chemical Sisters is a fun video for my favourite season. I watched this many times when it was first made and thought it a great idea making an instrument out of test tubes. It's nice to see which elements people like and why. I expected Steve Liddle's favourite element to be Uranium and am still intrigued to know what it really is?"

2. EXPLODING CAKE



Sarah says: "It has cake and explosions, need I say more? Lovely way to celebrate PTOV's first birthday."

3. POTASSIUM



Sarah says: "My favourite element, even if some people think it is evil. I learned a bit more about it too."

4. ETHIOPIAN PERIODIC TABLE



Sarah says: "This shows how scientists work when going on trips/conferences/ meetings etc. It is a fine example of science communication, encouraging kids and shows how PTOV's can be used in schools."

5. MERCURY BELL



Sarah says: "Fascinating to see two (eccentric) scientists chatting about chemistry and this shows how innovative science can be."

Thanks again to Sarah.

I'll be posting a few more top fives over the next few weeks or months (including my own, although is that a bit like choosing your favourite child!!!?).

Your own contributions are also welcome.

  2. Basketball doesn't necessarily only have to be really just rule licensed play during an indoor fire wood court. You will find many varied variations relating to the game which usually bring basketball towards whole cutting edge level. Variety is about the things which basketball a very popular recreation. www.scorespro.com
