Good pop-sci program for kids (10 and above)

    Hi Guys!
    Any recommendation/reviewed material of somewhat good and less deceiving pop-sci programs. Thanks and appreciated. :blushing:

    I like Jim Al-Khalili's documentaries for BBC Horizon, particularly:

    Atom (3 parts)
    Chemistry: A Volatile History (3 parts)
    Shock & Awe: The Story of Electricity (3 parts)
    The Secret Life Of Chaos
    Science & Islam (3 parts)

    and also Marcus du Sautoy's - The Story of Maths (3 parts)

    None of them go particularly deep, but give a nice history and overview of the subjects without the OMG TIME TRAVEL moments that seem to litter a lot of pop-sci programs.
