Demonstrations in Physics
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You bet; this is a high quality series. Each episode is a fifteen minute black and white short subject. All are action demonstrations, no straight lecture. Minimalistic. Very fast paced bench physics demos with Prof Julius Sumner Miller narrating as he goes along. He looks every bit the part of the mad scientist, white hair akimbo, fast talking, excitable. Not dumbed down. He wasn't the type who would suffer fools well. Accompanied by the math. Dense. Fast. Kind of funny in a way. If he drops something, or something misfires, he just plows along and does it again. As the demo reaches its(often swift)dramatic peak, Prof Julius Sumner Miller will exhort "Watch it!, Watch it!" Have taught physics myself and appreciate the depth and cogency he packs in fifteen minutes. A good guide for classroom demos. A real jewel. Relates the demo to the math very clearly, but it is his almost frenetic bench demo presence that makes it a compelling watch. So in the old master's own words, "Watch it, watch it!"
