I’ve just come across a copy of a short film I first saw when I was about 16. It totally mesmerises me every time I see it.
It’s called Powers of 10, and was produced by IBM labs in 1977.
Mr Bond, an exceptional teacher who taught me Physics at Bishopshalt School for 5 years, first showed it to us during an A-Level physics class.

Who might be interested in having this video upgraded with today technology?
