Full HD Documentaries on YouTube
Had again a WOW experience this week as I realized that full size, high definition and high quality BBC documentaries have recently shown up on YouTube.

I started watching The Strange Science of Decay which provided me 1 hour and 28 minutes of a fascinating journey in the microscopic world of bacteria, fungus and insects directly in the palm of my hands on that Galaxy Note's 5.3-inch super AMOLED display.

I suppose this is entirely legal as the EvolutionDocumentary YouTube channel seems serious, it began 2012 January 1st but I could not find any additional information regarding what agreement was found with BBC and the other concerned content producers.

Well, meanwhile I won't care and just enjoy them while they last...

Ever wondered what would happen in your own home if you were taken away, and everything inside was left to rot? The answer is revealed in this fascinating program, which explores the strange and surprising science of decay.

For two months in summer 2011, a glass box containing a typical kitchen and garden was left to rot in full public view within Edinburgh Zoo. In this resulting documentary, presenter Dr George McGavin and his team use time-lapse cameras and specialist photography to capture the extraordinary way in which moulds, microbes and insects are able to break down our everyday things and allow new life to emerge from old.

Decay is something that many of us are repulsed by. But as the programme shows, it's a process that's vital in nature. And seen in close up, it has an unexpected and sometimes mesmerising beauty.
