I remember watching this on PBS in the 80’s.
It had no small effect on my view of the world.
Good find!

“You see what your knowledge tells you you’re seeing.”

This, btw, is the big problem with creationists and everyone who never study outside their secure little bubble. All around the world the challenge is the same - does what I believe hold up to scrutiny? Some are afraid to continually ask themselves that question, and convincing them otherwise is very, very difficult. Even those of us who think we’ve got this covered discover we can never escape our own beliefs. Fortunate is the person who has others who poke him once in a while.

Another good series by James Burke was Connections, which traces how inventions and science have been interconnected through history. I used eps from both series in my physics classes, as he does a great job making complex subjects understandable.

Thanks for the tip. I had several of these eps on videotape, but left them behind when I switched jobs. It’ll be nice to see them again.
