The Periodic Table of Videos (each element 6-8mins)

The Periodic Table of Videos is a collaboration between the University of Nottinghams School of Chemistry and video journalist Brady Haran. They initially made videos about all 118 elements.

Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century but this modern version has a short video about each one. Theyve done all 118 but their jobs not finished. Now theyre updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments. For more info go to The Periodic Table of Videos.

This series is hilarious, interesting and informative. For complete playlist go to YouTube.
