The Way Things Go

Fischli and Weiss remove these things that surround us from their contexts in our daily lives, and then restructure their relationships to one another. The artists aim neither to glorify nor to alienate these common objects, but merely to create new references in which they might be considered.

THE WAY THINGS GO — without narration or interviews — simply records the self-destructing performance of Fischli’s and Weiss’ most ambitious construction: 100 feet of physical interactions, chemical reactions, and precisely crafted chaos worthy of Rube Goldberg or Alfred Hitchcock.

BBC - The Cell 1 Of 3: Hidden Kingdom (part 4/6)

The first part explores how centuries of scientific and religious dogma were overturned by the earliest discoveries of the existence of cells, and how scientists came to realise that there was, literally, more to life than meets the eye.

In a three-part series, Dr Adam Rutherford tells the extraordinary story of the scientific quest to discover the secrets of the cell and of life itself. Every living thing is made of cells, microscopic building blocks of almost unimaginable power and complexity.

BBC documentary on Cuba in Africa and the their help to end Apartheid

Cuba helped free African countries from colonialism and apartheid, which is a largely unknown part of history outside of Cuba and Africa today. Mandela thanked Fidel Castro and said Cuba’s role was decisive. It’s the best documentary I’ve seen. I filmed this off of my TV screen. It’s a BBC documentary called “Cuba! Africa! Revolution!”.
