Part 1 continues the discussion of semiconductors begun in programme 5, and part 2 deals with the response of a simple RC circuit to a transient and sinusoidal signal input.

Footage description: Part 1 of this remake is introduced by Gary Alexander and follows on from the final demonstration in TV5. The flow of holes and electrons in a transistor, and their density gradients, are used to explain the two most basic transistor properties: the exponential relationships between the base emitter voltage and emitter current, and the near equality of the collector and emitter currents. The explanation is illustrated with graphics. Part 2 of the programme is identical with the 1972 version.
