The new BBC 4 documentary, Atom, hosted by Jim Al-Khalili, is one of the best documentary series I have seen this year. It focuses on the development of the modern theory of the atom and quantum physics. Available on the usual torrent networks.

Sounds like a good programme- I will download it from MV Group.

Of the two great scientific revolutions of the 20th century, relativity and quantum theory, it is quantum theory that will impel progress in science and engineering in the 21st century.

The 21st century will be known as "the quantum century".
