Periodic Table of Videos

The Periodic Table of Videos from the University of Nottingham, School of Chemistry in England is a series of YouTube videos produced by Brady Haran, a former BBC video journalist. Each element of the Periodic Table has its own video ranging in length from 3 to 10 minutes. There are also numerous extra videos on other subjects related to chemistry. 

The videos are narrated by the School of Chemistry professors including Professor Martyn Polikoff the archtypical mad scientist. Take a quick look at the Bismuth (Bi) video, the heaviest non-radioactive element, number 83 for a good introduction to the fascinating and informative videos.

The videos are positively addictive. One can easily spend an enjoyable week going through them and learning a lot of chemistry.
