That was just great. A very well presented lecture using a well-chosen set of examples, e.g. not just "a series of things that went bang" but a lot of different

He captured the imagination of his audience in the lecture theatre and right here at Youtube. A quality lecture, never a dull moment, keeps you sharp even if its been 30 years since your education. This is how you turn young minds to science.

The RI Christmas lectures, very happy memories... As English kids we didnt know how lucky we were as regards educational tv in the Christmas holidays, what better gift could our country give us than knowledge... These have run for nearly 200 years, obviously not on tv though :)

Watched this demonstration so many times. I can't imagine children not being obsessed with science after veiwing this. Explinations were very simple and clear.

What a fine teacher and superb lesson. Every subject should be taught in this manner. I can't understand why anyone would give a thumbs down.

This lecture is extremely effective at explaining the happenings behind these physical effects. This really deserves more views, it's simply brilliant in it's helpfulness.

I loved when he was doing the round the theatre demo of the shock tubing when he said "I hope your happy, your surrounded by 800m of tubing that contains an explosive 70 times more powerful than TNT" haha :)

I experienced a physics lecture where there was some liquid nitrogen in an old school thermos bottle. One of the students absent mindlessly screwed the lid onto the thermos. The physics teacher saw this, went OMG and tried to unscrew the lid, which neatly unscrewed the mercury glass bottle from the metal base, but didn't budge the lid. He pelted to his tiny, crammed office next door to the classroom and left at speed, closing the door after him. Shortly there was a "poof" noise. The glass container and its mercury disintegrated into an incredibly fine dust over every surface of his office. It was a heck of a mess to clean up.  Today it would have required hazmat suits, but back then we just used rubber gloves and shop towels.

Of course I knew all of this but it was presented in a way that was entertaining that made me feel like a student again. We desperately need more of this for kids, its wonderfully educational!
