Erosion

Miniclips: Earth's Changing Surface

Some of Earth’s magnificent landforms are caused by erosion and weathering. But what is erosion and how does it change the Earth’s surface so drastically? This Miniclip explains the process of erosion including the various mechanisms such as...Show More

Extreme Weather

Miniclips: Earth's Changing Surface

Heat waves, tropical cyclones, droughts, tornadoes, hailstorms, floods, and severe thunderstorms. These are all examples of extreme weather that shape our landscape. But what exactly are they and how do they happen? This Miniclip explores each of...Show More

Rivers of the United Kingdom

Miniclips

Rivers are a significant part of our natural landscape – they offer habitats for animals, support biodiversity, provide spiritual connections and much more. This Miniclip visits the United Kingdom's three longest rivers – the River Severn,...Show More

Weathering

Miniclips: Earth's Changing Surface

Some of Earth’s magnificent landforms are caused by weathering and erosion. But what is weathering and how does it create magnificent structures on our planet? This Miniclip explains the process of weathering including the two main types:...Show More

The Challenges of New Technologies

Agriculture and Technology

For many new agricultural technologies, feasibility issues need to be considered before they can be adopted by farmers and businesses. This video explains why scientific verification and practical adoption of technology are both important and...Show More

Impact of New Technologies

Agriculture and Technology

New technologies in the agricultural industry can have environmental, social and economic impacts. This video explores the technology that targets methane emissions, how fruit yield and quality can lead to greater profitability and how commercial...Show More

Defining the Problem

Agriculture and Technology

Agricultural processes have a large-scale impact on natural resources and ecosystems and many businesses are turning to technology to help. This video introduces some issues that agricultural technologies aim to address, including water scarcity,...Show More

Developing Technological Solutions

Agriculture and Technology

Before agricultural technologies can be adopted by businesses, they need to be thoroughly tested and evaluated. This video looks at the techniques and systems researchers use to collect and evaluate data, such as internet-connected sensors and...Show More
Weird Wonderful Water

Weird Wonderful Water

Life in the Sea

This programme is about seawater. It is the most important liquid on Earth, not only from its sheer volume, but also because it has remarkable qualities. A few of them, like buoyancy, are common to all liquids - but seawater is also the cradle of...Show More
The Water Cycle

The Water Cycle

Water

Water is continuously moving from the earth’s surface to the atmosphere and back to the earth’s surface. This is known as the water cycle. Dew, frost, hail, snow and fog are different forms of precipitation.
Air Pollution

Air Pollution

Pollution of Air and Water

The main causes of air pollution are natural and human pollutants. Gases emitted in the atmosphere due to volcanic explosions and forest fires are natural pollutants, while gases like sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides released from industries,...Show More
Aspects of Cattle Farming

Aspects of Cattle Farming

Improvement in Food Resources

Cattle are very useful to humans as they provide milk and meat and also help with agricultural tasks. To get a good yield from cattle, they should be provided adequate fodder and water, and proper cleaning and shelter facilities.
Wind Currents

Wind Currents

Natural Phenomenon

During the day, due to the strong sun, the air above the surface of the earth gets heated and rises, creating a region of low pressure in that area. When the warm air reaches the upper levels of the troposphere, it gets cooled, sinks and rushes...Show More
Rock Cycle

Rock Cycle

Rocks

There are three major types of rocks, namely, igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, and metamorphic rocks. These rocks undergo change, from one type of rock into another, under certain conditions. This change happens in a cyclic manner and is known...Show More
Igneous Rocks

Igneous Rocks

Rocks

Igneous rocks make up the maximum volume of the earth’s crust. The cooling and solidification of lava and magma results in the formation of igneous rocks. They are of two types: Extrusive igneous rocks and intrusive igneous rocks.
Destructive Distillation of Coal

Destructive Distillation of Coal

Coal and Petroleum

Coal is a fossil fuel and mainly consists of carbon and small amounts of hydrogen, sulphur, oxygen and nitrogen. Heating coal, in the absence of air, is known as destructive distillation of coal. It yields various useful products like coke, coal...Show More
River Landforms of the Middle Course

River Landforms of the Middle Course

Rivers

The calm appearance of a river in the middle course hides the fluvial processes at work under the surface. This video explains how landforms such as meanders and oxbow lakes are created through erosion and deposition and shows viewers the rapid...Show More
Journey from the Source: River Severn

Journey from the Source: River Severn

Rivers

The River Severn, the UK’s longest river, is a perfect example of the transformative power of rivers on the landscape. This video takes viewers through the upper, middle and lower courses of a river, introducing key terms such as drainage...Show More
River Landforms of the Lower Course

River Landforms of the Lower Course

Rivers

As a river comes to end of its journey in the lower course, distinctive fluvial landforms emerge. This video explains how floodplains, levees and estuaries are created through deposition and shows viewers the transformative impact of changing...Show More
Fluvial Processes

Fluvial Processes

Rivers

As rivers journey from source to sea, they shape the landscape through a variety of fluvial processes. This video offers viewers in-depth explanations of erosion, transportation and deposition, covering the four types of erosion, the four types...Show More
River Landforms of the Upper Course

River Landforms of the Upper Course

Rivers

The upper course of a river contains impressive landforms created from thousands of years of vertical erosion. This video explains how landforms such as waterfalls, gorges and interlocking spurs are created through the fluvial process of erosion,...Show More
Irrigation

Irrigation

This video explains the process of both sprinkler and drip systems of irrigation.
Tectonics: Our Earth and Its Movements

Tectonics: Our Earth and Its Movements
