2.1 How do we use maps?

Napoleon and Russia
Napoleon Bonaparte's invasion of Russia in 1812 is the centerpiece of this six-minute video and deals with its cause and effect.

Investigating bacterial communication
Can bacteria communicate with each other, and if they do communicate, how and why do they do so? And how might understanding the mechanisms of bacterial communication be used to inform development of anti-bacterial drugs? In this album scientists involved in pioneering work into bacterial 'quorum sensing'' at Nottingham University in the UK reveal some of the techniques they use and give insight into what they hope to achieve.
