At the invitation of the Australian Academy of Science an International Conference, consisting of a Symposium on Electron Diffraction and a Symposium on The Nature of Defects in Crystals, was held in Melbourne from 16 to 21 August 1965. With the permission of the International Union of Crystallography and CSIRO Australia I show two important and rare historical video clips taken from this meeting (50 years after the Nobel Prize to the Two Braggs). Kathleen Lonsdale talks about crystallography (this was about the time that I joined her research group at University College London, and so brings back personal memories for me). BBC Women’s Hour has also made available a recording of an interview with her in 1967. The second shows Paul Ewald talking about the origins of X-ray crystallography. Not to be missed!
I also show several other relevant videos for your enjoyment!
