Why is it so?

Great collection of clips from TV science teacher Julius Sumner Miller “Why is it so?”

Why is it so? – the ground-breaking TV series with the enigmatic Professor Julius Sumner Miller – ran on the ABC from 1963 to 1986. Professor Miller’s infectious enthusiasm for physics delighted, educated and entertained generations of Australians, most of whom have at some point asked each other ‘Why is it so?’ in the characteristic Julius Sumner Miller voice.

The Lab has found some of the funniest, most entertaining segments from the Why is it so? series, and made them available for twenty first century enjoyment – over both dialup or broadband connections. Now you too can watch some ‘enchanting experiments’ with the good professor!

    Now all we need is episodes of The Curiosity Show.

    My name is RDAC, and physics is my business…

    God bless that man and his mysterious flask o’ plenty. If you watch all his old physics demos, he’d reach for a bottle of something under the cabinet between episodes.

    It was probably water, but it was still funny. I, like many other high school students, are in that man’s debt for the amount of know-how he taught me.
