Here's Dish Life, part of the Cambridge Shorts film series to show university research in an interesting way. You may recall me talking in the summer about children in paddling pools pretending to be stem cells - here they are! (Sound Recordist) (8 mins)

Pain in the Machine is a good one too - whether we could create a robot that feels pain, and the reasons this might be useful

I love this! I've rarely seen on film the sort of cell culture work I do; usually scientists are represented hanging around in the lab wearing white coats and pipetting, you don't see the little details of getting cells out of liquid nitrogen storage, thawing them, putting them in a dish and feeding and observing them. My cells (cancer cells, not stem cells) are a lot less delicate than this, I usually have a few hours' grace between them getting hungry and them dying and destroying my experiments, so I don't have a bleep like the stem cell people. But otherwise it's me! Thank you for helping to make the film.

Yay! It was fascinating, we spent most of a day doing scientist interviews and the coffee-break scene, it brought back some of my science memories tending the diffusion furnace :-)
