PRODUCT INFORMATION As the Sherlock Holmes of science, James Burke tracks through 12,000 years of history for the clues that lead us to eight great life changing inventions-the atom bomb, telecommunications, the computer, the production line, jet aircraft, plastics, rocketry and television. Burke postulates that such changes occur in response to factors he calls "triggers," some of them seemingly unrelated. These have their own triggering effects, causing change in totally unrelated fields as well. And so the con- nections begin…

American Film Festival Winner

  • English Subtitled

  • Digitally Remastered

  • Series: $ 99.99

  • Thirteen programs on 5

DVDs

  • Runtime: 676 minutes

PRODUCT INFORMATION An American Film Festival Award winner, this 13 volume series attempts a massive survey of science, from flint tools to the theory of relativity. The series, a co-production of the BBC and Time-Life Films was made as a science counterpart to "Civilization". It is given superb technical support, with two crews using innovative filming techniques, shooting in 27 countries. Dr. Jacob Bronowski makes for an unorthodox narrator, his non-scripted delivery ranging from hushed awe to trembling passion. He uses the crawling infant, the performing athlete, the development of the hunt and the discovery of fire to illustrate the most distinctive feature of man: imagination. His Scientific-Humanism is often spectacular, always provocative.

PROGRAMS:

Volume 1: Lower Than Angels Volume 2: Harvest of the Seasons Volume 3: Grain In The Stone Volume 4: The Hidden Structure Volume 5: Music of the Spheres Volume 6: Starry Messenger Volume 7: Majestic Clockwork

Volume 8: Drive for Power Volume 9: Ladder of Creation Volume 10: World Within World Volume 11: Knowledge or Certainty Volume 12: Generation Upon Generation Volume 13: Long Childhood
