The Secret Life of Chaos

This is a BBC documentary presented by Jim Al-Khalili, taking a look at a fascinating and hidden side to chaos. With some of examples to explain how nature transforms simplicity into complexity, it uncovers the science behind much of beauty and structure in the natural world and discovers that far from it being magic or an act of God, it is in fact an intrinsic part of the laws of physics. Amazingly, it turns out that the mathematics of chaos can explain how and why the universe creates exquisite order and pattern.
