Light Fantastic

Upon referral from Professor David Hall, I just had a Light Fantastic marathon.

This four-part television documentary series by BBC concisely explored the phenomenon of light from several points of view, from the historical events to renowned science and physics discoveries and helped me further understanding the experiments I have done so far. I particularly  enjoyed;

>The in-depth story of Alhazen's theory covered during the first episode, Let There be Light.
>The third episode, The Stuff of Light, which unfolds the subsequent development of the modern technology in relation to the discovery of light's nature.
>The fourth episode, Light, The Universe and Everything, which features the color vision mechanism.
