Recorded from a re-run in the early 1980s here is another programme from the series 'Experiment',
Granada's series of filmed biology and chemistry experiments for secondary school pupils.
Parodied in the first series of the BBC comedy series 'Look Around You', this shows how different
from today programmes for schools were in the 1970s.
[Quote from tvcream]
Experiment was so down-to-Earth it didn't even bother with such frivolities as a theme tune or in-vision presenter.
Instead, for the most part, educational film producer Jack Smith's disembodied voice guided the class
through some on-screen experiments, conducted in a plain studio by a faceless white-coated experimenter,
the equipment forever shot in impersonal close-up, with periodic silent pauses as Smith instructed
the class to "write that down!" when a result or measurement was shown.
Mechanism of Alkene Bromination
An experiment designed to study the reaction of an alkene with bromine
and to indicate the pathway or mechanism of the reaction.
The products of the reaction are examined using gas-liquid chromatography.
Intended for sixth form students.
