- WHAT IS IT THAT WAVES
- Program Description
A WGBH - MIT science program experiment with Professor Morrison of MIT in a high school physics class, using dance, documentary and other techniques.
From the June 1968 WGBH Program Guide: “What are waves? This program seeks to show visually the forces produce waves, and to demonstrate how they are detected. Those who have witnessed the power of a tidal wave tell of their experiences, and experts explain the effect- and the cause- of a sonic boom. Scientists demonstrate shock waves, show how waves are created within waves, and explain the relationship between waves of light, sound, and water. Televised in color, ‘What Is It That Waves?’ stresses the importance of this seemingly commonplace phenomenon, and at the same time shows the scientific process in action.”
Color, RT: 90:00, 1968.
