A film made by a Lancaster physicist in the Arctic circle is among four chosen for a British Universities Film and Video Council award.

The national award for the Physics Lives videos was presented at the British Film Institute in London. Produced by the Institute of Physics, the four short films focus on the work of research physicists including Professor Jim Wild of Lancaster University.

He is featured in a video “Written in the sky; the Aurora borealis uncovered “ which is shot in Iceland as he investigates the science behind the Northern Lights.
