Across The Pond has three new short docs out this week!

19 March 2012

First up were two films for Google Science Fair, which had us filming at the home of the Large Hadron Collider, which CERN scientists are using to determine the origins of the universe.

We were inspired by the many scientists we spoke to who are trying to answer really big questions, such as "where do we come from?"

The second film for Google Science Fair was about how robots can aid scientific research, in this case scientists from Cambridge University spoke about using LEGO to aid their research.

Our third little documentary was a lovely film about Colossus, the world's first electronic programmable computer, used for code-breaking at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. 

It celebrates Colossus and the pioneers behind it, in particular Tommy Flowers. We hear first-hand accounts from the last surviving veterans of his team on the ingenuity unfolding during war time Britain. The film also tells of how this ground-breaking project was almost forgotten despite saving the lives of thousands. 

A working rebuilt Colossus can be seen at The National Museum of Computing in the UK.
