Ice Stories:  The Train from Pole to Troll (Clip)
Running Time:
00:02:45
At the South Pole, the Ice Stories crew met up with correspondent Zoe Courville just before she and her team embarked on their 3,000 km traverse across the desolate and frigid East Antarctic Ice Sheet. In this video, Zoe gives us a tour of the vehicles they are taking on their cross-continent journey, including their living module, sleeping quarters, and science sled.

Origins: Cold Spring Harbor:  Dr. Walter Gilbert (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:25:57
Dr. Walter Gilbert, a physicist who turned to molecular biology in 1960, won the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1980 for determining the base sequences of DNA. His recent research has concentrated on the structure of genes and the evolution of DNA sequences. In this Webcast, Dr Gilbert tells us how physicists have helped drive discoveries in molecular biology, and the relationship between private and university research efforts.

Origins: Cold Spring Harbor:  Dr. Sydney Brenner (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:24:51
Dr. Sydney Brenner won the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine in 2002 for his work with the tiny nematode, C. elegans. Dr. Brenner recruited the one-millimeter worm in the early sixties as the ideal model organism to study cell differentiation and organ development. In this program, he describes how new model organisms are established for studying basic physiology, recounts his reaction to seeing Watson and Crick's DNA model for the first time, and offers advice to young scientists just starting out.
