    I may be shallow, and I am, but I really wanted visuals for this.

    David this is brilliant -- I was reliving my high school physics classes through your podcast. Keep it up and well done.

    Well, I can't help but agree that it would make life a lot easier. Science/engineering is totally visual for me, so it really gives me gyp to try and do it on the radio.

    However, bonus visuals are actually available in the transcript.

    Dude, if it was anything like my high school physics class -- then my sincere apologies!

    ... although it does give me an idea for my next programme: "Can anyone remember the definition of energy? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?", etc.

    But very glad if it all made sense...

  • Andrew Feltoe,

    Ha, you should have had my teacher. I was going to continue with Physics in University until I discovered chicks didn't dig it. It's all a foggy memory now.

    All this talk about joules and watts is making me hungry. Looking forward to parts 2 - 50. BTW, the BBC recently did a series on science called Look Around You. You might want to check it out.

    [**REPLY**: Thanks Andrew I'll certainly have a look at the series. Cheers, DH]

    [**REPLY 2**: Just watched the programme -- utterly brilliant! Oh, and it's so very tempting to do something like this with PA Science. Cheers, DH]
