The Guardian opened a dedicated space on its website for videos produced by Newton, a public service science channel, the newspaper reported last week. The new website will feature “interviews with scientists, fascinating lectures, heated debates and topical reports, and perhaps even science-y meetings in pubs that might be of interest to an even wider audience”, the announcement said.
The partnership between the Guardian and Newton started originally 18 months ago, but previously the videos produced by the channel had been hosted among the Guardian’s other video offerings. The new dedicated space comes “As part of our increasing commitment to online video”, the paper said.
Newton TV specialises on science films in particular, and correspondingly the newly launched Newton Channel is part of the science section of the Guardian’s video pages. Newton will operate independently, but there would most probably be plenty of Guardian collaborations as well, the newspaper said.
