Metal: How it works.

I watched Metal: How it works on BBC 4 last Monday.

Really interesting program, first part covered what most children learn in school but the second part covered some of the more recent developments in Metal brought about by having powerful microscopes capable of looking at the atoms in metal and the changes they undergo.

Sounds boring ? Far from it...a very interesting program well presented.

We are born into history and history is born into us.

I'm sure it was on about a year ago and yes, it was really interesting. Thumbs_Up
