Atom - A Documentary

In this three-part documentary series, Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the story of one of the greatest scientific discoveries ever: that the material world is made up of atoms.

PART ONE - Clash of the Titans

Professor Al-Khalili takes us from the discovery of the atom to the development of quantum mechanics.

PART TWO - The Key to the Cosmos

This episode tackles world-changing discoveries such as radioactivity, the Atom Bomb and the Big Bang, and tries to answer the biggest questions of all - why are we here and how were we made?

PART THREE - The Illusion of Reality

Al-Khalili discovers that there might be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist, and finds out that empty space isn’t empty at all, but seething with activity.
