To help you navigate through the film, especially if you are aiming to use it in the classroom, I have broken it into 10 separate clips: the Introduction and the Closing credits (in which the scientists talk about cheese) and eight clips, each of which addresses a particular question.
- Opening sequence and introduction to what the film is about.
- What do you do when you’re not doing science?
- When did you first get interested in science?
- For some of the scientists interviewed, there was an inspirational teacher.
- Do you have a Nobel prize?
- Are you a genius?
- What does it take to make a good scientist?
- Is science fun?
- Is science finished – is there anything left to do?
- Conclusion and credits (with answers to the question: what’s your favourite cheese?)
Alternatively, if you find it easier to use the film as a whole, I have listed the key time-points for each section. The links should take you to the specific point in the video:
- 00:00 Titles and Introduction
- 01:24 Meet the scientists: What do they like to do when not doing science?
- 02:41 When did the scientists first get interested in science?
- 06:54 For some there was an inspirational teacher…
- 08:26 Have any of these scientists got a Nobel Prize?
- 09:36 Do you need to be a genius to do science?
- 11:07 What does it take to be a good scientist?
- 15:14 Is working in science fun?
- 19:59 Given all the recent progress, isn’t science nearly finished?
- 23:58 Conclusion, Credits and the all-important cheese question.
If you have any feedback or suggestions on how to make the film easier to use in teaching, please let me know.
