    Excellent talk at clear basic level. To save time, one can start at minute 7:00.
    That's where he discusses the standard model and then the Higgs, and then moves on to what else might be found.

    I gather the talk was given this morning, 19 October, at a science writer's conference.

    This 40 minute talk by Weinberg contains valuable insight and perspective about current directions in particle theory. Plus it is highly accessible.
    He is speaking to the national convention of science writers.
    The introduction, by another speaker, takes up the first 7 minutes.
    Weinberg's talk goes from minute 7 to minute 48. Then the rest of the hour is questions and answers.

    He gives a clear overview of particle physics, stressing the parts he thinks are relatively important.
