Now that is a great little piece of content!  I wish they had more of this type of stuff than the silly little PSAs at the end of cartoons!

Hell, yeah. Best show ever. Curiosity show ran from 1972 to 1990 with Morrison and Dr Deane Hutton. Aimed at primary school kids, they made science fun and interesting, and explained things in easy to understand terms..
I started watching when I was not quite seven, it was one of my favourite shows. I made quite a few of the projects they did, they were pretty straight forward. Even after I was older than the main target audience, I'd still occasionally watch it if there was nothing else on.
Good find, fancy.

fancylad Childrens Television Workshop were looking at doing a US version with Morrison and Hutton consulting in the development, but PBS didn't think kids would ne able to be engaged by middle aged scientists....go figure.

Here's Dr Deane Hutton, with a demonstration of Ames Wndow...
