Here's a clip (17MB, 5m45) from Experiment, looking at bomb calorimetry. Why? Because it's the 1970s educational show that directly inspired the first season of Look Around You.. ^_^
I've tried watching two shows of the second season, but... well, it just doesn'thave the same magic. It's got humour, but the pacing is far too slow. :)
Oh, I don't know - they both have their charm. ^_^ The second series was based more along the lines of Tomorrow's World (and I have a clip of that, too, but the original compression's a bit wonky - x264 puts the sound out of sync, and QuickTime Player refuses to finish. The segment on ERNIE, a computer dedicated to random number generation, was a hoot, with the proud declaration that it could generate 11,000 random ten-digit numbers in one minute =:), so they could spend more time developing the silliness.

Both series are definitely worth getting, but I'd probably also lean towards the first.

I was first treated to the 2nd season and loved it, even though some of the humor was a bit forced. Then Porsupah sent along the 1st season, so much better! They really need to return to that format. The segment they did on video games from the 2nd season simply cannot be missed, though.
