Feynman Interview

Browsing the web I found a link at feynman.com to some footage of Richard Feynman that has been made available by the BBC on their website. The footage is from the horizon programme, ‘The pleasure of finding things out’ link:Feynman interview by BBC Horizon.

Feynman talks about his childhood, involvement in the trinity project to develop the atomic bomb and the effect this had on him, the nature of science and understanding. It’s nice to see him speaking on film after reading so much of his writing – I hadn’t seen these interviews before myself.

Interviews with other scientists and engineers are available here and possibly here too. Unfortunately you will require flash player 8 or above to view the pages.
