    Extremely popular daily science show, streamed via YouTube and presented by Hank Green and Michael Aranda. Each day has a different format news (eg. Friday is Science News Day, Monday features a short video about our ‘Weird World’, whereas Wednesday’s video features longer, more in-depth investigations). The format is energetic, upbeat and engaging and the items generally well-researched, although one video on Genetically Modified Organisms caused some controversy and was taken down from the site after being criticised, as biased and inaccurate by science blogger Myles Power. SciShow made a new video Why Are GMOs Bad? in which they acknowledge the flaws in the previous film and present a more balanced case.

One of the first US radio science talk shows, the programme has over the years featured such names as Carl Sagan, Jane Goodall, Sylvia Earle and Oliver Sacks and has a reputation for groundbreaking and original science reporting. According to the site, the show’s founder and executive producer Ira Flatow was the first person to use the word ‘podcast’ on the airwaves. Archives go back as far as 2004 but there is also a substantial amount of video content. A section of the attractively laid out website features a range of educational resources, mainly aimed at primary and secondary school level.

    This site aims to promote the creation of innovative video content about plant life and make the best of these films accessible and easy to view on a single website. The site began in 2008 as a competition, with funding and support from three plant biology organisations and Penn State University’s Institutes of Energy and the Environment. The films are divided into two broad categories: General videos are intended for a broad audience, while films in the Technical category are for classroom or research use and are aimed at viewers with some academic background in plant sciences. Although the site appears not to have been updated since 2010, most of the videos are still available.

    This website is the result of a collaboration between the Humanities Division and the Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford. The project aims, through an interdisciplinary approach, to analyse and explore the fertile and complex period in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, when early modern science began to take shape, and it aims to do this by focusing on the networks of learned correspondence from the period. In this way the project hopes to provide a unified way of approaching a subject which would otherwise - given the variety of its disciplines, professions, institutions and settings - be extremely daunting. One outcome of the project is a union catalogue - Early Modern Letters Online - currently available in a Beta version. A number of podcasts and videos document the proceedings of seminars, workshops, conferences and other meetings relating to the project.
