Here are my channels

It seemed like about time to write another update of all my projects and YouTube channels.

If any of them sound interesting, please do subscribe on Youtube (if you don't have a YouTube account, it is super easy to sign up and totally free).

They're listed in no particular order.

Started with a video about every single element, this series has branched into other areas of chemistry. A collaboration with the University of Nottingham School of Chemistry, the most familiar face is that of Professor Martyn Poliakoff.

Example video:


This is the physics spin-off from periodicvideos (above). Loosely based on the various symbols used by physicists and astronomers, it was originally supposed to be sixty physics videos... It's now closer to 200 films. Again a collaboration with the University of Nottingham, but this time with the School of Physics & Astronomy.

Example video:


Sort of about mathematics, but not always. The premise is that each video is about a different number, from zero to infinity! This is one of two video channels by Brady which were sponsored by YouTube in 2012.

Example video:


A sister channel to Numberphile, this version obviously centres on computers, the internet and similar topics. Unlike other channels on this list, most of the work and film-making is done by my talented colleague Sean Riley - but I try to stay involved in some small ways.

Example video:


These astronomy videos look at science and news from the very depths of space. While they cover a range of areas, the primary goal is to make videos about all 110 of the so-called Messier Objects. This was another YouTube-sponsored channel but is now run in conjunction with the University of Nottingham.

Example video:


The projected which started it all, and still going. This video series takes you behind-the-scenes with scientists. From the passing a PhD exam to a professor's retirement... From the heart-ache of a failed experiment to the joy of a big funding grant. This project also contains out-takes and extra footage from Brady's other projects, such as Sixty Symbols and periodicvideos. The project is again a collaboration with the University of Nottingham.

Example video:


A chance to go deep inside some of the UK's biggest and best science facilities, from giant synchrotrons to powerful lasers. A project with the Science and Technology Facilities Council. The project is currently in hibernation but you can still watch all the videos and maybe it will come back to life one day!

Example video:


This is a collaboration with the University of Nottingham's School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies. Each video is based on a word (usually a foreign word which has migrated into English - but not always!).

Example video:


A video about every book in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. This project has since branched out into new areas, such as focusing on individual verses. The project is not religious but rather an academic discussion of history's most famous text. A collaboration with the University of Nottingham's Department of Theology and Religious Studies. We're currently adding new videos only very occasionally.

Example video:


A fun but informative discussion of scientists - by scientists. Various experts at Nottingham Trent University select their favourite scientist - sometimes famous and sometimes obscure.

Example video:


A video project looking into the wide-ranging world of food and science - from health to technology, from taste to food security.

Example video:


An occasional series with philosophers at the University of Nottingham.

Example video:


An occasional series with psychologists at the University of Manchester.

Example video:


This is a personal channel - it is where I put videos I want to make but have no home for!
