Secrets of Quantum Physics

Professor Jim Al-Khalili reveals how Einstein thought he'd found a fatal flaw in quantum physics that implies that subatomic particles can communicate faster than light. The host of "The Amazing World of Gravity" and "Everything and Nothing" shows how robins navigate using quantum entanglement, how our sense of smell is touched by quantum vibrations, and how physics might play a role in evolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Professor Jim takes a very difficult subject and makes it easier to understand with all the examples he uses. I now have a better basic understanding of quantum physics and it effects on so many aspects of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Explanations I have seen Presenter gives the best explanations of the various experiments (about Quantum Mechanics) I have seen to date. Also his analogies are very good, especially about the conflict between Einstein and the Copenhagen Interpretation. Note this is a 2014 BBC product. I had no issues with audio/video synchronization. Minor issues with CC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Audio / Video problems Throughout the videos (Episodes 1 and 2) the audio/video fell out of sync. Whereas the information was quite good the sync problem made viewing the video somewhat difficult.
