This is probably one of the oldest films released in TDF. The character of physical law is a series of seven lectures by the physicist Richard Feynman on the nature of the laws of physics.

The talks were given by Feynman in 1964 at Cornell University as part of the Messenger Lectures. His text was published by the BBC in 1965 in a book of the same name.

The conference covered the following topics: The law of gravity – an example of physical laws, the relationship of mathematics to physics, the conservation principles of high symmetry in physical laws, the distinction between past and future, the probability and uncertainty – the point of view of quantum mechanics of nature, and the search for new laws.
