I love this video from Symphony of Science – classic stuff with Dawkins, Attenborough and co. and a different take from the space ones. I wish John D. Boswell would take on archaeology next – that’s not only full of wonderful clips, I think it would make a great video!
When people make all those strange allegations and ludicrous claims against remix and sample media, I don’t think they are thinking of such creative and beautiful uses as this – I don’t see how anyone can be upset about this sort of remixing? And it makes science fun! Now who’s going to explain string theory and the rules of football in a remix song? Anyone?
And for the Americans, here’s his Mr Rogers mashup which is a sweet tribute to the man, and fittingly was asked to do it by PBS and approved by the Fred Rogers company! Apparently there are more on the way, so good new…
