This lecture explains how my participation in making some videos for the University of Nottingham’s ‘test-tube’ YouTube channel led to collaboration with the video-journalist Brady Haran, and the creation of the YouTube channel, The Periodic Table of Videos. Beginning as a collection of 120 videos (one for each of the elements of the Periodic Table, plus introduction), it gathered momentum and now has about 600 uploaded videos, 790,000 YouTube subscribers and more than 130 million views in over 200 countries. Its evolution and success will be explained.
No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
