I have always been a HUGE FAN of science TV shows produced by BBC (with my basic cable subscription in Vancouver, luckily I've got the Knowledge Network...). This video is the promo or opening for the upcoming episode of the Dara O Brian's Science Club. Within a few minutes it provides a very short history of physics, and leads to ideas in modern physics. And the animation was really fun to watch.
It seems that Dara O Brian's Science Club is a new show (only at its second episode), but I will be following the website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00zxmqd/clips) in the future for more of such clips. Also check out the one on the story of inheritance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3F5BV82Lg8). Videos are available both on their website and through their YouTube channel.
