BBC Science – 50 Years of Horizon
This app celebrates fifty years of Horizon, the BBC's flagship science program.
It contains clips from some of the stand-out episodes across the decades, interviews with current presenters of Horizon as they look back at some of their favorite moments from the series, and an interactive timeline that spans this half century of science programming and allows you to jump to stories that interest you.
Designed and fully optimized for the iPad with full-screen videos throughout, this interactive digital book brings to life specially curated highlights from the Horizon back catalogue—more than one thousand episodes and counting! Gems from the archives reveal an extraordinary slice of scientific and social history, feature in-depth profiles of some of the greatest living scientists of the age, and cover some of the biggest and most controversial scientific stories of the postwar world. Space exploration, AIDS, environmentalism, the microchip, cloning: rewind time and browse clips from the very best of science programming.
