Why Study Icons with Dr Mary Cunningham
Icons -- religious images from the eastern Churches -- are far more than religious images as seen in western churches: they enable an encounter between the observer and the mystery. In this video, Mary Cunningham, an expert on Orthodoxy, introduces them.

Cold War: Red China - part 1/5
1949 - 1972 Chinese communists win the longest civil war in 20th century history. Mao's land reforms are popular but in 1958, he embarks on a series of catastrophic changes. China maintains an incrasingly uneasy relationship with the Soviet Union. In 1960, the Sino-Soviet split paves the way for President Nixon's historic visit to Beijing.
A Fractured Future: climate change in an age of fossil fuel abundance [Audio]
Speaker(s): Lord Browne of Madingley | Editor's note: We appologise for the explicit language used in part of the question and answer session. In 1997, Lord Browne broke ranks with the rest of the oil industry and acknowledged the risk posed by the climate change. In this lecture he will reflect on the progress made since that speech, and the prospects for the future. John Browne is a former chief executive of BP.

Virtual Maths, Cylinder Voids - Calculating volume
Interactive simulation with exercises and video demonstrating the use of auger piling and showing how to calculate the volume of cocrete needed to fill the cylindrical voids.
The PDZ Domain as a Complex Adaptive System
Specific protein associations define the wiring of protein interaction networks and thus control the organization and functioning of the cell as a whole. Peptide recognition by PDZ and other protein interaction domains represents one of the best-studied classes of specific protein associations. However, a mechanistic understanding of the relationship between selectivity and promiscuity commonly observed in the interactions mediated by peptide recognition modules as well as its functional meaning
2.4 Defining terms
Care is needed at all stages of life. This unit makes care in the family its focus because the overwhelming majority of care, including health care, is supplied in families, much of it in private, much of it unnoticed and unremarked upon. The meaning of the term (informal carer) and the word (care) itself are explored.
