Most of our universe is missing( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is everywhere, not made of atoms, and can't be seen?" Dark matter, says renowned astrophysicist David Spergel - but not everyone in the cosmological community is in agreement with him. This program presents the views of Spergel and other key figures in the debate, including Princeton University's P. James Peebles and Jeremiah Ostriker; Timothy Sumner, of Imperial College London; astrophysicist Mordechai Milgrom; and Saul Perlmutter, a member of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's physics division. Experiments in Europe's deepest mine looking for the elusive neutralino, the concept of variable gravity, and what may well become the new standard model of how the universe works are all scrutinized.

"Do most people get their values from their parents or from society at large? At what age, and with what tools do children begin to work out what is right and wrong?

This program explores those questions by observing a group of 25 six-year olds and the varying levels of honesty and compassion they display"--Container

Describes how the use of psychedelic drug LSD came to a halt in the 1960s. Researchers around the world found that psychedelic drugs are beneficial to health if taken under control.

Dr Miller and the islanders( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Jonathan Miller travels to the Pacific to retrace the first ever anthropological expedition, and challenges the catagorization of anthropology as a science. A hundred years ago Alfred Ahaddon led an expedition to the Torres Strait Islands, establishing for the first time the concept of 'field studies' as the scientific basis for anthropology. As he travels through the same islands, Miller reveals, with wit and humour, how anthropology became a recognised science at Cambridge University and the difficulties anthropologists face in really understanding other cultures."--Container
