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.. ^_^
Is that the same narrator?
I'd like to confirm it, but I believe it is, yes. ^_^ (But you can imagine googling a series by the name "Experiment" poses problems =:)
Ya need to google "Look Around You" instead. :) It appears to be someone different.
Oh! Did you manage to locate a name for the original narrator?

Pity - still, they got the style down pat. Ah, I need to watch a module or two now.. ^_^

(I admit, I actually found shows like that fascinating, well ahead of any opportunity to indulge in such experiments myself. I always did enjoy the chemistry lab work, measuring reagents down to milligram accuracy, running gas spectrographic analyses.. didn't get on with trying to use the melting point apparatus, though. I could rarely seem to establish a nice, simple m.p. - it'd more start at some point, then be complete by another. But the dainty glass capillary tubes made for much fun with a bunsen for impromptu glassworking =:)
No, but IMDB listed a narrator for Look Around You, and his credits don't include an earlier TV science series so I assume it's a different voice actor.
I noticed that absence, but wasn't sure if that was definitive, given Experiment's a relatively obscure show, being just one of many schools shows produced then, in the age when a TV would be wheeled into the classroom at the appropriate broadcast hour. ^_^; Given how central the narrator was to the first season, I'd be very surprised if there isn't a mention in some interview as to whether they found the same person, or simply someone able to convey that same dry Home Counties intonation. I must find out!

Oh well. It's good to have a purpose in life, ne? ^_^;
