The first satisfying answer I've ever seen. (And please, if you've seen other good resources, post them here too!)
Could more of education look like this? Why doesn't it?
A comparable video that actually gives all that detail is very hard to do (if it's at all possible) and it's also likely to be very boring - unless you are into chemistry at which point you don't need a video like this in the first place because the books are perfectly fine for you (they were for me and I have nothing but interest into chemistry - no education aside of what you'd get in High-School).
95% high schoolers aren't going to any college requiring chemistry.
Why not teach the fun and memorable flame to them, instead of boring chemistry flame they wouldn't understand or remember?
I heard this on air on Friday 8 June 2012 in Minnesota.
