Documentary Description




ATOM









In this three-part documentary series, Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the story of one of the greatest scientific discoveries ever: that the material world is made up of atoms. The book that accompanies the Atom series is published by Icon Books.







1. THE CLASH OF THE TITANS



Professor Al-Khalili takes us from the discovery of the atom to the development of quantum mechanics.







2. THE KEY TO THE COSMOS



This episode tackles world-changing discoveries such as radioactivity, the Atom Bomb and the Big Bang, and tries to answer the biggest questions of all - why are we here and how were we made?







3. THE ILLUSION OF REALITY



Al-Khalili discovers that there might be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist, and finds out that empty space isn’t empty at all, but seething with activity.
