Saturday Learning Series - Credit Where It's Due

The following set of videos from the fascinating professor James Burke of England, is part of a series entitled The Day The Universe Changed. This episode is entitled Credit Where It's Due. The series looks at how society has ended up where it is now as a result of some seemingly completely unrelated and startling event of the past.

You might think history is dry and dull. If James Burke were your professor, you wouldn't think so. His series are truly excellent.

NOTE: The Saturday Learning Series on Nonsensible Shoes has changed it's time slot to noon, in order to try to reach a wider audience. For more learning series search Nonsensible Shoes for the term "Saturday Learning Series". If you haven't followed the series, at a minimum, at least look at the rest of The Day The Universe Changed, as there's a connectivity between the episodes.
