Richard Feynman Interview on BBC Horizon

I have read a lot of Richard Feynman’s introductory physics writings, popularizations, and autobiographies including his three volume lectures on physics, QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter, Six Easy Pieces, Six Not-So-Easy Pieces, Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!, and What Do You Care What Other People Think: Further Adventures of a Curious Character. His explanations are stellar, and his anecdotes are extremely entertaining. However, I have felt the most joy hearing him speak (unfortunately for me, only in recordings). I wanted to share his voice and his ideas with my college writing students today since we had a snow day at KSU, and I thought I would share this video with you as well. I told my students about the pleasure of finding things out, and there is no better teacher of this than Feynman. Feynman offered his thoughts on finding things out on the BBC programme Horizon. Go here to watch it on Google Video: Feynman.avi.
