    One of the best examples of moving image applied to industry is the films made by the British Transport Film Unit between 1949 and 1982. They catered for the transport industry’s need to train its vast work-force, keep the public informed of new developments, and manage their corporate reputation within the sector. Network Rail commissions short videos to support today’s needs including, internal reviews, scientific research, historical records, training, safety, corporate communication and public relations. Their videos are available on their Youtube Channel and are organised into Playlists which include: Week on the Network, Safety, Level Crossing, Working with Communities and Passengers and detailed account of specific improvement plans such as Ordsall Chord and the Electrification project from Gospel Oak to Barking.

    Also known as the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, the institute was founded in 1995 for the purpose of pursuing research into the fundamental laws of gravitation. The Videos, Pictures and Texts section of the website is organised into five categories: Images, Movies and Simulations; AEI Research Reports; Brochures; Max Planck Research and Max Planck Yearbook. The audio-visual content includes short films about Quantum gravity and unified theories, the GEO600 Interviews-where scientists explain the direct detection of gravitational waves-, an interview with Nobel Laureate Rainer Weiss, and an animation illustrating how ATLAS analyses data from the international gravitational wave observatory network. The institute also provides the Einstein online, a resource that presents Einstein’s theories via two main sections: the Elementary Einstein with the basics of relativistic physics, and the Spotlight on Relativity, which explores modern relativity research.

    A public learning laboratory, The Exploratorium, is devoted to just that: exploring the world through science, art and human perception. Their mission is ‘to create inquiry-based experiences that transform learning worldwide’ and perhaps more importantly their vision is ‘a world where people think for themselves and can confidently ask questions, question answers, and understand the world around them’. The museum makes available a vast range of, video programmes, organised by subjects, including: Arts (532 videos), Astronomy and Space (220), Biology (331), Chemistry (97), History (35), Mathematics (19), Nature of Science (13), Perception (55), Physics (215), and Social Science (575). There is also a Websites section with over 35, 000 pages of content, which can be explored by subject too.
