    Always try youtube or wikipedia, when this failes. Here’s an uncropped version.

    It’s not cropped when full screen. Double click on the video to see it full screen.

    I love vintage science films like this. Do they still even bother trying to teach kids with this, or have they stopped making this sort of thing all together?

    Agree with Sid, they should show this stuff to preschoolers on a projector in a dark room.

    Completely agree Sid and Will. Maybe we should gather a bunch of vintage science videos and make a single resource page on SB for science teachers. If you have some favorites, post links.
