Science and Research Themed Viewing

It’s no secret that Bond Research Week is just around the corner. To get in the mindset during the semester break you might like to watch one of these movies. Some of these are loose with the laws of nature and history – they are Hollywood entertainment after all – but you might get a feel for the motivations, excitement and politics of research and science.

You’ll find them in the Audiovisual Lounge in the Main Library – check the links for availability.
