The Determination of the Newtonian Constant of Gravitation
Here is another programme from the series 'Experiment' parodied in the first series of the BBC comedy series 'Look Around You'
This particular programme is the oldest (but not the last) in my collection of the 'Experiment' series and it has to be said probably
the most 'interestingly boring' of them all. (I'm not selling this very well am I ?)
Presenting an experiment in sixth-form physics it shows the measurement of the gravitational force of attraction between spheres a known distance apart.
Full of long pauses and instruction to take measurements I hesitate in saying this but I can highly recommend it if you're suffering from insomnia. (Sorry Jack)
[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.
Presented by Jack Smith
