A note about the quality of most of the clips. These were filmed and edited in the period 1998-2000, when Internet bandwidths were perhaps 1000 times slower than in the year 2020. The decision was taken to put online only "postage stamp" size clips so that most people would have have the bandwidth to view them. Nowadays (2020) in the era of fast movie downloads of 6 Gbytes or more, that seems very quaint. The largest clip here (the 2 hr Woodward lecture) is ~2 Gbyte (and its not in colour). The original recordings have been archived somewhere, and one of these days perhaps someone will track them down, and issue them in larger sizes.Acknowledgements: We thank the Imperial College TV Studio and Colin Grimshaw and Martin Sayers for the audiovisual production and digitisation and Jeffrey I. Seeman for direction and production of the teaching clips.
