George Porter shows how we can make a type of fuel by shining light on a substance.
Watch the full sixth lecture of the series:

George Porter gave the 1976 Christmas Lectures "The Natural History Of A Sunbeam" about the power of light, from the role it plays in stimulating life to supplying energy to our homes.

The sixth lecture "Survival Under The Sun", where this clip is from, sees George talking about the eradication of fossil fuels and how the sun can continue to supply us with power in the future.
