URL:www.vega.org.uk
  • Interesting people
  • Nothing
As stated on the opening page of this site, "Vega is a not for profit organization, which broadcasts science programs for free over the internet." Hooray. This gets major points in my ranking scheme. Programs include face-to-face interviews with prominent scientists on topics of their expertise, including Max Perutz (hemoglobin), Fred Sanger (genetic engineering), Richard Ernst (NMR), and George Gray (liquid crystals). It also includes interviews with Nobel prize-winning scientists. The video format used is Real Video and the quality of the production is superb. An important and informative set of videos.
