‘A is for Atom’ by John Sutherland

Well, what you might expect from a US 1953 public information film about nuclear power and weaponry: simplified science and a rather narrow political view!

This came from Public Domain Motion Pictures on Youtube, a ‘free channel devoted to Public Domain, Open Source and Copyleft movies, TV shows and serials’.

‘Why Build a Sun on Earth’ by Nik Morris

Why Build a Sun on Earth? from Nik Morris on Vimeo.

Short film made by Nik Morris in collaboration with fusion scientists at York Plasma institute, this is a beautifully designed film which disseminates academic research.

“Touring UK schools in a portable ‘Sun Dome’, this film offers an informative and entertaining spectacle that demonstrates the benefits of nuclear fusion research and empowers its young audiences to be part of the solution for our energy future.”

Winner: 1st Prize, Durham New Energy Futures Film Festival at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle, UK on September 27th 2012
