Screen Portrays Dukes Life - The Actor The Duke of Edinburgh (standing, second from right)

Screen Portrays Duke's Life - The Actor
The Duke of Edinburgh (standing, second from right), dressed for a role in Macbeth when he was 14 and a pupil at Gordonstoun public school on the east coast of Scotland. This is a scene from "Prince Philip", a biographical film on the life of the Duke which will be shown in London today for the first time. Veteran producer Howard Thomas, who made the colour Coronation film "Elizabeth is Queen", spent a year sorting through thousands of feet of film touching on the Duke's activities. The half hour documentary opens with the Royal Wedding Day in 1947; goes back to the Duke's schooldays and ends with the Coronation.

X-ray of light bulb Featured 4 Jun 2001 Print

X-ray of light bulb

Light bulb. X-ray of an electric light bulb. Bulbs produce light from a filament (horizontal structure, upper centre). This is a finely coiled wire of tungsten which heats up and glows as an electric current is passed through it. The contacts through which the electricity is supplied are seen on the base (bottom centre) as white oval shapes. Tungsten is used in the filament as it is strong and has a high melting point (3410 degrees Celsius). The glass bulb contains inert gases, usually nitrogen and argon, to prevent corrosion of the filament by oxygen. Over its lifetime, the tungsten filament slowly evaporates away until eventually it breaks
