Saturday Learning Series - Connections 2, Revolutions

James Burke, historian.
James Burke's series Connections and The Day The Universe Changed in the late 1970s and mid-1980s respectively were very successful at taking a historical and philosophical look at scientific change.  The two series led to a Connections sequel (Connections 2) in 1994, with James Burke still at the helm of the project (and another, Connections 3 in 1997). 

While not as awesome as the original, Connections 2 is still a solid effort and a much more interesting take on history than you find in high school or most university lectures and engaging enough to enjoy.

Note - If you are interested in the Connections series or Connections 3 or The Day The Universe Changed, they can be found here.

Here's episode 1 of Connections 2, Revolutions.
