At the beginning of the 19th century, 55 elements had been discovered, and although scientists had no idea how many more they might yet find, they already had a suspicion that there was some sort of unifying pattern behind them all. This program charts the quest for order among the chemical elements by examining the contributions of Dmitri Mendeleev, creator of the periodic table of elements, and many other chemists and physicists: John Dalton, Jöns Jakob Berzelius, Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner, Stanislao Cannizzaro, John Newlands, Robert Bunsen, Gustav Kirchhoff, Paul Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran, Ernest Rutherford, Niels Bohr, and Henry Moseley. Original BBC broadcast title: The Hidden Order.
