New Nobel Prize Winner Professor George Porter, F.R.S. Director of the Royal Institution, London demonstrates some of the fascinating scientific experiments used in his award-winning work.
The 1967 Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been jointly awarded to Professor Porter and two of his scientist colleagues for work on the phenomenal speeds of chemical change, where, in the tiniest part of a second, a whole new world appears 'as quick as a flash'.
During a special presentation, at the Royal Institution in London, Professor Porter revealed some of his dramatic experiments to his fellow members and their friends. BBC outside broadcast cameras were present on this privileged occasion. (Colour)

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
