|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).
Series continued from Episode 11.
Here's episode 12 of Connections 2, entitled Hot Pickle.
