Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The New York Times called it "quite simply, a milestone in programming". Now, watch Dr. Jacob Bronowski as he has never been seen before. New video masters have given us the ability to digitally re-master this classic series enabling you to give your students a 21st century viewing experience.

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.

Programs in the series:
Lower than Angels
Harvest of the Seasons
Grain in the Stone
The Hidden Structure
Music of the Spheres
Starry Messenger
Majestic Clockwork
Drive for Power
Ladder of Creation
World within World
Knowledge or Certainty
Generation upon Generation
Long Childhood

Review
