Grades 6–12. An American Film Festival Award winner, this 13-part 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 2 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. Includes 13 video programs totaling 676 minutes. The subscription gives all teachers and students affiliated with the school access to this Ambrose streaming video content for 1 year.
