Gold Bullion At The Bank Of England

What does £197 billion ($315 billion) in gold bullion look like? Videojournalist Brady Haran accompanied University of Nottingham chemistry Professor Martyn Poliakoff on a very rare visit to the Bank of England to tour a vault that is filled with gold bullion. They captured their visit on video and are sharing it with you.

Wow, it takes a nation to get that much together, you could live your whole life trying to gain one of those bars (each one is 668,000 dollars). But he can't lift 28 pounds with one hand? Nerrrdd!
