  • In the late nineteen eighties, Belfast became part of the World Health Organisation's Healthy Cities Project. The aim was to get as many institutions as possible to make health central to their planning and to give the diverse communities of Belfast a real say in their future. What were the challenges they faced? What solutions did they evolve? In this album Healthy Cities founder member Ilona Kickbusch and Belfast health promotion professionals Joan Devlin, David Stewart and Mary Black explore the history of this important health project. They reveal the crucial role that partnerships across both public and private bodies played in the success of the project. This material, recorded in 2006, forms part of The Open University course K311 Promoting public health: skills, perspectives and practice.

  • In the sub-arctic environment in northern Norway and the high arctic climate of Svalbard, reindeer have adapted to their environment in different ways. The five video tracks in this album explore the key concepts of evolutionary science and investigate how these account for the characteristics of arctic reindeer.

The material forms part of the course S366 Evolution.

  • Heimurinn er á iði og allt í kringum okkur gerist á ákveðnum hraða. Það er svo bara spurning hver hann er og hvað hann er. Í þessum þáttum skoða Tómas Ævar Ólafsson og Snorri Rafn Hallsson hraðann í kringum okkur út frá sjónarhóli vísindanna, samfélagsins og hversdagsins. Hversu hratt er hægt að fara? Hversu hratt ættum við að fara? Flækist hraðinn fyrir okkur eða greiðir hann úr flækjum? Er hratt alltaf hratt? Þeir kumpánar fá til sin eðlisfræðing, alþingismann, sálfræðing, skáld og flugmann til að gaumgæfa hraðann, eðli hans og merkingu. Einnig flakka þeir um bæinn og gera tilraunir með hraðann á eigin skinni. Umsjón: Tómas Ævar Ólafsson og Snorri Rafn Hallsson.

  • A series of lectures, inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, will highlight the University of Edinburgh’s internationally acclaimed medical research and show that keen detective work is still essential for 21st century doctors.

    Conan Doyle drew inspiration for Sherlock Holmes when he was a medical student at Edinburgh and based his character on the Professor of Medicine Joseph Bell, who was known for his meticulous attention to detail.

    The lectures will show that, just like Sherlock Holmes, today’s medical sleuths must use powers of observation and deduction not only to make the right diagnosis but also to find new treatments.
