Trivia

Fourth of four educational films produced by Bell Laboratories and directed by Frank Capra on the subjects of the sun, the human circulatory system, radioactivity and the weather. These films were used regularly in classrooms since they were well produced and Bell Laboratories would supply 16mm copies of the films to schools free of charge. See more »

A timeless classic

Frank Capra stikes again! This is an interesting video. This used to be available free to schools through the old Bell System. It was listed as being for all audiences-and boy were they correct. Everyone from first graders to AARP types could learn something from this video and enjoy doing it. I have been showing this movie (now a video) for over 30 years and student get as much out of it today as they did 3- years ago. Why don't they make more science videos like this today!
