Second of nine educational films produced by Bell Laboratories on the subjects of the sun, the human circulatory system, radioactivity, the weather, heredity, language, the oceans, the five senses, and time. Four of these films were directed by Frank Capra.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. The films were criticized by Time Magazine as being "condescending", but embraced by nearly everyone else. See more »

Bell Science Series about the pulmonary and circulatory systems.
Actually, I would rate this an 8 for teachers of intermediate level students. I remembered watching it in elementary school and never thought I would be able to obtain a copy. Well I did. I watched it and decided to show it to my class of 5th graders, not sure of the reception since some of the animation was dated. The students thoroughly enjoyed it and asked to see another one like it. It made understanding the circulatory system so simple and gave much more information than the text book. There were one or two things I needed to update, but other than that it was great. I actually wish we had more films like this rather than those that barrage the students with so much at one time. It gave the children time to think about what they were learning. It would be great if someone would update these.
