Underwater Microscope

In the marine environment, there's a lot of really small scale processes that affect large ecosystems. For example, coral reefs, while they can extend hundreds or thousands of miles, they're built by individual coral polyps that are around a millimeter in size. Currently, if you want to study an individual coral polyp, you take a sample from the reef and bring it back to the lab. But, that sampling process in itself is going to disturb the organism a lot. To help get a better, up-close look at tiny sea life, but without disturbing this delicate underwater world, scientists developed a new underwater microscope that brings the lab to the ocean.

The Physical Environment

Environmental health goes beyond monitoring and managing the physical environment. It spans areas of public health issues, such as noise and visual pollution, waste disposal and pest control and is a major, yet often subtle influence on the health and wellbeing of a community. Living in a rundown, neglected and unhealthy physical environment, can impact directly on individual and community health. Other factors relating to the physical environment, such as access to community facilities, public transport and employment, also shape the quality of life. In this film, environmental health workers with Brent Council in London Jennifer Barrett and Clive Dinsey, together with social worker Ben Hoskins and Julia Twigg from the University of Kent, offer insightful reflections on a range of e [...]

Lorraine Zilner Rodgers

Lorraine Zilner Rodgers was a member of The Women Airforce Service Pilots, known as the WASP, the first group of women pilots to serve the United States Army Air Force in WWII. Out of 25,000 women who applied to the program, Rodgers was one out of 1830 who were accepted. Given the task of ferrying aircraft across the country, to allow the men to be available for combat, Rodgers often had to deal with the stigma of being a woman pilot. The WASP did everything the men did with equal ability, but lacked the equality of full military benefits. After many years of fighting for military recognition, Rodgers and her fellow female pilots received their veteran status on March 8, 1979 and cemented their roles in WWII, as well as the history of aviation.

What Is the Black Death?

This 'golden age of trade' provided the ideal conditions for the rapid transmission of the disease via caravans and ships, while attempts to escape it only further contributed to its expansion.

George McGovern

George McGovern has spent a large portion of his life in the political arena, holding office as U.S. Congressman for South Dakota for 22 years, as well as running as the Democratic presidential nominee in 1972. However, it is his outstanding military career that makes him a true Legend of Air Power. McGovern flew 35 combat missions as a B-24 bomber pilot. As the subject of historian Stephen Ambrose' book The Wild Blue, it is apparent just how much responsibility was heaped on such a young man. His bravery in WWII earned him the Distinguish Service Cross. Ambrose once remarked that "McGovern is one of the greatest patriots I know".

Carl "Tooey" Spaatz

Carl "Tooey" Spaatz is one of the genuine characters of American aviation. In the wild and woolly days of flight, he was a guitar-strumming free spirit who often offended the military establishment. But over the course of his career, Spaatz did as much to shape the modern Air Force as any other single person. He trained most of the American pilots who fought in WWI, pioneered air-to-air refueling, and his command of WWII's strategic air forces forever changed the way war is fought. When he retired, President Eisenhower paid tribute to him saying that Tooey Spaatz had never been wrong.
