Description

SBH:Directly To The Heart - Professor Nicole Le Douarin, French embryologist, talks about her life and work. Interviewer: Professor Lewis Wolpert.

PRE:How she became involved in scientific research. Why embryonic development interested her. Finds research much more interesting than teaching. (6'10"") Her discovery of the nuclear marker in developing cells which she made using quail and chicken eggs. Luck involved in science. Pleasure and excitment she gets from her work. (13'00"") her current research group. Difference in research work between science and the arts. (18'00"") changes in French science over the last 25 years. The French public's attitude towards science. How she feels about receiving prizes and awards for her scientific work. Gets very anxious about failing in her work.

Description

SBH:The Weirdest Of Fancies - Professor Sheldon Glashow, physicist at Harvard University, talks about work on the unification of the fundamental forces of nature that earned him a share of the 1979 Nobel Prize. Interviewer: Professor Lewis Wolpert.

PRE:How he first become interested in physics and why he chose theoretical rather than experimental physics at college. How he started work on the unification of the weak and electromagnetic forces of physics. His work in the early 1960s on the problem. (13'03"") how his work and the work of others came together in the early 1970s to produce a unified theory. The independent discovery, on the same day in 1974, of two charmed quarks. How these discoveries helped develop the theory. OTN:TLN030/90FS3722
