The Joy of Statistics

For all the dross and muck and pointless stuff on YouTube, there are also gems.  Here's one to share with your colleagues in Maths, Science, Social Science, and anyone else teaching students about statistics - a one hour BBC documentary with Dr Hans Rosling.  Free and available on YouTube.  Bargain.

You can find the video embedded here:
and it played when I just checked it.  Other related videos on that page, too.

Remind your teachers to load this ahead of the lesson, so they're not waiting for it to load as they show it.
