Besides his research Feynman gained popularity as a great eductator and a charismatic science popularizer. His lectures, especially the public ones, became a hit back in the day and popularized Feynman even among people with no interest in science.

So, since I am a big fan of Feynman as well, I decided to gather a collection of resources related to Richard Feynman. This includes free & non-free lectures, interviews, documentaries, written lectures and links to audio books.

So here’s a fun fact — Bill Gates apparently is a great fan of Feynman. He has a collection of things related to Feynman, such as some original manuscripts of Feynman’s work. In fact, Bill Gates is such a big fan, that he bought a series of original lectures by Feynman and made them available to the public. You can view these lectures online at the **Project Tuva**, where you can find higher quality videos, plus some extra stuff. Also check out these great lectures available on YouTube.

Here we have a bunch of links to written lectures by Richard Feynman. Some of his lectures are offered for free, however, others are only available to buy.

Now there are loads of books about Richard Feynman and, obviously, I can’t list them all. So here are a few books that you might find interesting. The list includes both books by Feynman himself and books about him. For more books go to eBay or Amazon.

**Surely You Are Joking Mr Feynman**

**What do You Care What Other People Think**

**The Pleasure of Finding Things Out**

**Six Easy Pieces **

**Feynman **

**Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman **

**Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track**

**Classic Feynman: All The Adventures of a Curious Character**

**Quantum Man**

**No Ordinary Genius**

**Tuva or Bust: Richard Feynman’s Last Journey**

**Feynman’s Rainbow **

**Richard Feynman: A Life in Science**

There are also a number of great free interviews and documentaries available online. Here’s bunch of them including some extra links below. If you enjoy the documentaries below, consider supporting them by buying the DVD’s.

**The Pleasure of Finding Things Out**

**Richard Feynman: No Ordinary Genius**

** The Fantastic Mr Feynman**

** The Best Mind Since Einstein**

** The Quest for Tannu Tuva**

** Take the World from Another Point of View**

** Space Shuttle Challenger Investigation**

** Strangeness Minus Three**

** It Took a Genius**

** Richard Feynman**

Knowing the legendary charisma of Feynman it’s not a big surprise that there’s a movie about the life of the great scientist. “Infinity” is the story of the early life of Richard Feynman. Also, for all of you trivia fans out there, there’s a little known movie called “Anti-Clock” in which Feynman himself has a minor role. Once again, if you enjoy these movies, consider supporting the makers by buying the DVD’s/Blu-ray’s.

** Anti-Clock (IMBD|Amazon)**

In this section we take a look at some audio books about and by Richard Feynman. Obviously, there are so many audio books that I can’t list them all so I’ll just add the ones that I thought might be worthy of your attention. For more audio books check out the audio book section on Amazon.

**Surely You Are Joking Mr Feynman**

**The Pleasure of Finding Things Out: The Best Short Works of Richard Feynman **

**Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman**

P.S. if I missed something important feel free to leave a comment.

]]>Let’s start with a playlist of Christmas lectures from **King’s College London**. It’s a playlist of short 7 lectures on various subjects in science & engineering.

The Royal Institution is also famous for their Christmas lecture series. Here’s a little collection of Christmas lectures from RI.

**Lecture 2 | Lecture 3 | Lecture 4 | Lecture 5**

And last, but not the least, here’s an old one from Richard Dawkins himself. For more Christmas lectures by Dawkins check out the link below.
