Boffins, Elements and Videotape...

SodiumThe University of Nottingham, guided by chemboff supreme professor Martyn Poliakoff, has brought out a 118 part video guide to the chemical elements, somewhat predictably called The Periodic Table of Videos. Interesting. And a bit British: somewhat low budget and endearing. Element boffins, nerds and anoraks (like me) will love it... Predictably sodium and lithium get dunked in water but scientists are only big kids, like most other adults. (Photo: chunks of sodium metal)
