As part of a new BBC4 series on Measurement, a film crew has been working at NPL, filming various items for the three hour-long episodes. The presenter of the series is Marcus du Sautoy, and he and the film crew spend some time with me in the dimensional metrology laboratories, filming some interviews and some interesting items of equipment.

The series aired on BBC4 in early summer 2013 as the 3 part series ‘Precision: the measure of all things’.

Fortunately for the viewing public, my scenes were left on the cutting room floor 🙂 Apparently they filmed far too much to be included and had to perform severe edits to fit the running time.

You lucky people…!
