The humble Braggs and X-ray crystallography

The field of crystallography began 100 years ago with father-and-son team William and Lawrence Bragg. With the help of archive footage from the Royal Institution, Patience Thomson presents an intimate portrait of her Nobel prizewinning father, William Bragg. Professor Stephen Curry demonstrates how important the Braggs’ discovery was. The film was funded by the Science & Technology Facilities Council and produced for the Royal Institution as part of the Ri Crystallography Collection.
