    What is colour?

    This is a response I produced for the 2014 Flame Challenge, sponsored by actor Alan Alda, to answer the question "What is color?" in a way suitable for school children. I don't know how it will go down with the eleven-year old judges, but I hope it at least gets some adults rethinking what they think they know about colour:

    After reading that page you might like to watch the actual video I submitted, which had to be only 6 minutes long. (If you watch the video first, you may want to keep the pause button handy!) I know there are a few minor glitches, but as it was submitted for a competition with a deadline I can't fix them until it's over.

    After reading the page and watching the video, you might like to watch these two rather misleading YouTube videos to see if you can see the problems with them:
