# Episode Title Description People Date
1 The Standard Model and the LHC! in the Higgs Boson Era Members of the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics hosted the 6th morning of Theoretical Physics covering the ways in which ideas from theoretical particle physics guide the high energy accelerator programme at CERN. Juan Rojo 12 Feb 2015
2 "Matters of Scale" - Complete Episode The issues of scale are investigated – from how properties change at very small scales, to the vastness of the Universe. Includes parts 1, 2 and 3. Pedro Ferreira, Alan Barr, Sylvia MacLain, Sonia Trigueros 09 Oct 2014
3 "Matters of Scale" Part 1 - Extremes of Scale Professors Pedro Ferreira and Alan Barr explain what scale means to them, from particle physics to the visible universe. At the subatomic level, gravity has a surprisingly large effect and particles are so small that they have no size. Alan Barr, Pedro Ferreira, Chris Lintott 08 Oct 2014
4 Beyond Digital Humanities: Skills, Application and Collaboration A thought-provoking closing keynote given by Melissa Terras, University College London, at DHOxSS 2014. Melissa Terras 24 Jul 2014
5 Creative Commons Matter, Antimatter & The Mystery of Existence In this talk Nazim Hussain, Oxford University, will provide an introduction to matter and antimatter and the interplay between them. Nazim Hussain 12 Dec 2013
6 How to find a Higgs boson The discovery of the Higgs boson last summer is widely regarded as one of the most important scientific discoveries of our time. David Hall 04 Jun 2013
7 A quick look around the Large Hadron Collider Oxford Sparks presents a visit to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. Find out more and explore other LHC resources at www.oxfordsparks.net/animations/lhc No protons were harmed in the making of this animation. Alan Barr 15 Apr 2013
8 Creative Commons Student Innovation: the LHSee app Chris Boddy, a Physics DPhil candidate at University of Oxford, talks about how he developed a smartphone app to explain the complex images produced by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Chris Boddy 21 Aug 2012
9 Creative Commons Higgs boson-like particle discovery claimed at the Large Hadron Collider Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider claim the discovery of the Higgs boson particle.
