Imagine Season 18 Episode 3 The Weird World Of Eadweard Muybridge
The Eureka Years, BBC Radio, 2008. (UK)
Adam Hart-Davis, with Producers John Byrne and Mary Ward-Lowery, recorded four new Eureka years programmes, covering the years 1650, 1879, 1893, and 1923. 1879 was the year in which Joseph Wilson Swan demonstrated the world's first successful light bulb and George William Garrett launched the world's first steam-powered submarine. Eadweard Muybridge was doing extraordinary things with cameras and naked people, and the Tay bridge collapsed in a storm, killing a trainload of people and prompting William McGonagall to write what may be the world's worst ever poem.
Adam Hart-Davis interviewed Stephen Herbert about Muybridge, at Kingston Museum.

Presented by Brent Clough.
"This is a study of the man who made the movies possible - pioneer photographer Edward Muybridge who began taking large format photographs of iconic landscapes of the American West and then caught the eye of the railway pioneer Leland Standford who supported his innovations. Muybridge eventually created cameras (and film stock) that really did 'stop time' and his work still inspires young slo-mo video artists Shaun Gladwell and Daniel Crooks (who 'slices' time with software). Radio Producer Tony Barrell also talks to Muybridge biographer Rebecca Solnit about his strange obsession, scandalous life and then asks astro-physicist Paul Davies if he thinks it's possible that time could be made of particles - and if so, what's in between?"
