I don’t know about you but last time I checked, my lifespan was finite. In the interest of making the wisest use of the time I have left, could you please give a quick synopsis of what is on these video clips so I know what I’m getting into here. Thanks.
In your previous post to this thread, you asked for an index of books and authors when the thread was being built organically with the help of other forum member’s. Since this was impossible to achieve until there were a sufficient list, this was left out for some time, but added at post #208. For your benefit, I’ll yet again post that index below.
As to the issue of James Burke’s “Connections” series, the reference to that was given in post #236. For your pleasure, I will, yet again, reproduce that information below also. If I am to spoon feed the information within this thread to prove its worth, is there much point to the exercise in the first place, or is there an underlying issue that you would care to broach that other members to this forum have missed, and are not a party to …

Connections was a ten-episode documentary television series created, written and presented by science historian James Burke. The series was produced and directed by Mick Jackson of the BBC Science & Features Department and first aired in 1978 (UK) and 1979 (USA). It took an Interdisciplinary approach to the history of science and invention and demonstrated how various discoveries, scientific achievements, and historical world events were built from one another successively in an interconnected way to bring about particular aspects of modern technology. The series was noted for Burke’s crisp and enthusiastic presentation (and dry humour), historical reenactments, and intricate working models.
