A newer version of this summary can can be found AT THIS LINK

A summary of video journalist Brady Haran's various video projects.

Here you'll find links and a brief description of each main project - and a sample video.
 

PERIODIC TABLE OF VIDEOS
periodicvideos.com
youtube.com/periodicvideos

A video about every element on the periodic table... 118 of them. All the elements have been done, but we're updating the films with new stories and better demonstrations. Plus we do extra videos on molecules, road trips, chemistry news and other cool stuff.  A collaboration with the University of Nottingham's School of Chemistry.

   

SIXTY SYMBOLS

youtube.com/sixtysymbols

All about physics and astronomy, loosely based around the symbols used by scientists. We also post regular videos in response to viewer questions. A collaboration with the University of Nottingham's School of Physics and Astronomy.


 

NUMBERPHILE

youtube.com/numberphile

This is a new project all about numbers, part of an exciting YouTube project to encourage more original content on its website. Stay tuned for videos throughout 2012.




DEEP SKY VIDEOS
youtube.com/DeepSkyVideos

As with Numberphile, this a part of YouTube's new program of original videos. Here we're looking at distant objects in space, starting with an attempt to make videos about the famous Messier Catalogue of objects. But also venturing into other areas of astronomy.




TEST TUBE
test-tube.org.uk
youtube.com/nottinghamscience

The project which started it all. It's essentially a look behind the scenes in the world of science. Not just the typical stuff you see on TV, but the real story of triumph and failure... warts and all!

It also features out-takes and extra footage from other projects, such as Periodic Table of Videos and Sixty Symbols.



BACKSTAGE SCIENCE
backstagescience.com/
youtube.com/BackstageScience

This project involves going backstage at some of the UK's top science facilities. They're mainly places run by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. The stories include the secret life of lasers, particle accelerators and spacecraft construction.

 

FOODSKEY
foodskey.net/
youtube.com/foodskey 

This is a new video project, all about the science of food. Topics range from flavour to fast food - food security to crop technology. Another project in collaboration with the University of Nottingham.

 

BIBLEDEX
bibledex.com
youtube.com/bibledex

A video about every book in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Not religious, rather an academic look at the most famous collection of books in history. Includes plenty of footage shot "on location" in Israel. And a new series all about verses.


 

WORDS OF THE WORLD
wordsoftheworld.co.uk
youtube.com/wordsoftheworld

A look at the story and history of various words, explained by experts in modern language and culture. Many of the videos focus on words which have their origins in other languages but are now used in English.

 

MY FAVOURITE SCIENTIST
favscientist.com
youtube.com/favscientist

Scientists discuss some of their professional heroes. The "favourites" range from some of the most famous names in science through to humble people you've probably not heard of. A collaboration with Nottingham Trent University.

 

PHILOSOPHY FILE  
youtube.com/PhilosophyFile

This was just a short project with a few philosophy experts. We've stopped for now and considering doing more perhaps?
