Fascinating history plus a look into the immeasurable future 8 Feb. 2014
By Harold Wolf - Published on
Cave men did it. Astronauts did it. Every top scientist did it. Modern man can't keep up with it.
"IT" is measurement. This miniseries addresses all 7 fundamental international units of measurement. A brilliant math master, Marcus du Sautoy, brings viewers another astounding science DVD series that is capable of dazzling beginners, and delighting professionals. He's seldom over your head in lingo or vocabulary, so the viewing is educational for all.


SDH SUBTITLES for all 3 episodes, each about an hour.
Episodes are fully packed with fact, visuals, experiments from past and state-of-the-art.
```` 1- - - TIME AND DISTANCE: Basic measurements from privative time, 17,000 years ago a French cave calendar. Cubit to the world's rulers using body parts as measure standards, as changeable as their reigns. Academy of Sciences in Paris standardizes length (meter) during the Fr. Revolution. Time advances to atomic and speed of light.
```` 2- - - MASS AND MOLES: The definitive kilogram vaulted underground near Paris is losing weight. That is a crisis for measurement throughout the world. Is replacing "Le Grand K" with a "mole" the answer? So much education, so fast, but in a pleasant way, I went back for a second view immediately.
```` 3- - - LIGHT, HEAT AND ELECTRICITY: Is there a fundamental never changing law of the universe that can be used for a more accurate measurement of heat, light, and electricity? See how far we've already come on Earth. How close to finding better measurement are we in modern science and technology? The historical photos, footage, and facts are amazing; as are the peeks into the future.

Excellent Series, Great! Whether You Are, Or Are Not An Engineer! 20 Sept. 2015

This is an absolutely fascinating series tracing the evolution of the various systems of weights and measurements. Engineer or not, you will enjoy this series. It begins with people using the length of the arm of a king, to using certain numbers of barley grains, to a platinum meter bar stored in France, to the Space Age, to our modern-day cyber-society. If all of this sounds mystifying, it is because it is meant to. This series will get you thinking about just how important precise measuring systems are in your life, and in the history of civilization . Anyone will enjoy this series, it would be great for classroom use. I gave this to many engineer friends. A couple of them actually admitted that there were a few things in the series that they had not previously known.......enough said!

An engaging and clearly written story about the importance and history of metrology. An excellent video for inspiring a wide audience to appreciate why science is important to society. A "must see" for engaging our youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

This British feature contains a wonderfully clear exploration of all aspects of scientific measurement. In particular, I enjoyed the production which avoided the irritating jumpy, flashy editing so often encountered in recent scientific documentaries.

One of the best videos I ever bought 4 Aug. 2015
By Rhel - Published on

One of the best videos I ever bought. It's both very informative and full of intelligence, a craft that supersedes every presentation that deals with science and math. It is a quadrone of what man is made of, such ability only a Sovereign creator can give and instill to a man. The indulgence of man in matter, numbers, weight and mass has changed the world of man's thinking, judgement and perception. A must copy for those who want to have a better attitude on how we should manage the world, and ourselves. Thank you for the richness of the presentation of this video. i never have imagined is was superb!
