Prompted by another thread, I went looking on youtube for one of my favourite scientists. That is Robert Sapolsky, and I already have a couple of his lecture courses on DVD. He specialises in biology and human behaviour. I found the first of his course of lectures given to students at Stanford University: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNnIGh9g6fA.

Might be of interest to other science fans.

Tim Harford has just done a radio 4 series Pop-up Economics, bios of scientists/economists.

Reviving this zombie thread to add another (free) resource for science fans. I can't remember how I found this particular resource (possibly somewhere here on MN):

https://www.open2study.com/

It's a collaborative project by various Australian Universities - and Australia has long been an exemplar of delivering education at a distance.

I've already done the Basic Physics course, which was excellent. And was given by a physics lecturer who owns a Bazinga t-shirt and isn't afraid to wear it. wink

I'm just getting to the end of the Chemistry course. That also is excellent; the lecturer occasionally likes to point out that there are no good chemistry jokes, and gives examples of very, very bad ones. grin

Both courses made my brain hurt at times - but in a good way.
