One of my minor interests is practiacal or applied chemistry. One of the fundamentals of chemistry is the periodic table.
The crew at theUniversity of Nottingham have put together videos about the table and are working their way through making a video about every single element. It includes stuff like physical samples and simple experiments. And some of the scientists are real characters.
Education comes alive. Check out the sample video here.

If you're interested in a bit more about the elements, I suggest you read John Emsley's great book. If you live near me, I can loan it to you.
