Over the course of this three-part series, Jim Al-Khalili, Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Surrey, energetically traces the curious evolution of chemistry by presenting astonishing stories about the elements and the dedicated visionaries and eccentrics who discovered them. Alchemists, chemists, and physicists all have a place as re-creations of pivotal experiments bring out the inherent drama and spectacle of science. If Elements were a book, it would be a page-turner!
