Saturday Learning Series - Connections 3, Episode 1

History itself is a series of connections of events. Sometimes seemingly unconnected events are connected in surprising ways. James Burke provides yet another series of connections in the Connections 3 series that explores how the modern day society and technology we take for granted has come into being. This series, unlike his others, exist almost as distinct chapters of a book - the series itself is connected.

Learning from history is important and James Burke's work is an enlightening, important and entertaining analysis of history from a unique perspective. I highly recommend it.

For other works by James Burke (and others), search this site for "Saturday Learning Series".
