  • Newtons Apple early Intro/Theme


    Here is intro/theme for Newton's Apple. This was taken from Season 2, episode 1 (1984). Hosted by Ira Flatow (1983-1987). Note that the music was different. This was shown on PBS for 15 years from 1983-1998. People would write and send questions to see how science and the real world works. Sort of like the science show Beakman's World.

  • Newtons Apple Theme


    Newton's Apple was an educational PBS show that ran from 1983 to 1998.

    This was the theme to the show for some period of time between 1990, when 3M took over the sponsorship from DuPont, and 1994, when the educational CD-ROM What's the Secret came out with this video on it.

    This video predates the widespread use of MPEG, and was originally compressed using MS-CRAM (Microsoft Video 1), which explains why the quality is... questionable. :)

    Gravity: Issac Newton vs the Apple tree


    My first film made at uni (and by far my favourite). I might put up the other two, but not the last one though since I want to try and have it shown at some festivals at some point.

    Thanks go out to the university of Gloucestershire for having a freakishly large collection of cameras and edit suites (but no actual apple trees on campus, frugal much? xD), Matt who edited this crazy son a bitch into a great video and Giack who was a beast when it came to filming it. I directed and acted in it. Oh and thanks to Sponge bob as well, stay shiny you magnificent son of a bitch.

    ps: apologies to Matt for spelling your name wrong in the credits xD

  • Isaac Newtons discovery of Gravitation


    The British evaded the fact that the half-witted plagiarism of Kepler by the circles creating the Newton cult, did not permit the consideration of any relevant, experimental proof of principle; hence, the silly diversion of proposing that Isaac I do not make hypotheses Newton had discovered gravitation through being hit on the head by an apple. (Presumably, if we consider the relevant evidence at hand, that apple either hit Newton too violently, or, in the alternative, not hard enough.)

    * Glitchy mystery ad at beginning of recording. (Possibly local ad for The Game block - I can make out some Bill Nye and maybe Wishbone.)

  • Mathnet | The Trial of George Frankly


    I know it's not in my nature to upload non-game shows, but there's a first time for everything.

    This episode of Mathnet is uploaded in honor of Square One TV's 25th anniversary.

    In this 1987 episode of Mathnet, Officer George Frankly is accused of robbing the Next-to-the-Last National Bank of $250,000. However, George had been on a fishing trip the past week, and both he and his partner, Sergeant Kate Monday, know he is innocent. Before the trial, the Mathnetters figure that someone George arrested before may want to get back at him. The main suspects are two escaped convicts: The Brothers Karamazoff (however you pronounce it): Irving and Jake, who were in for a computer crime.

    Joe Howard as George Frankly
    Beverly Leech as Kate Monday
    Mary Watson as Debbie Williams
    James Earl Jones as Chief Thad Green
    William Windom as Judge Herman Hoffman
    Jim Thurman as Crusty

    Someone wrote to ask if I had the opening from Wonderworks, which was a 1980s collaborative project between Disney and PBS to produce made-for-TV family movies. The good news is that, yes, I do have a copy. The bad news: it's a jittery, poor-quality copy with no audio.
