[edit] Information

The favorite of students and educators everywhere, James Burke the "scientific detective" is back tracking the fascinating links between technological invention, social history, economics, and, well, everything. "Life is a giant 3-dimensional globe made up of millions of threads that cross and recross each other," says Burke as he traces the lines that lead from a French loom to IBM, from a kink in a water pipe to a carburetor. "He makes two dozen international stops by way of explaining how the steam pump led to carbon paper, to the entire Industrial revolution and the moon landing, with drill bits, X-rays and genetic engineering along the way." says New York Newsday. "In one half-hour! Your head spins, but its the same as splendid champagne. TV is rarely this tasty or this smart, and hardly ever both in such a whiz-bang package."

[edit] Revolutions

Discover how the steam engine led to safety matches, imitation diamonds and the moon in a wild ride.

[edit] Sentimental Journeys

What has Freud got to do with maps? Or prison reform with blue dye? Or the inside of a star with the Himalayas? India reveals the answers.

[edit] Getting It Together

Start by examining a SWAT team, which leads to hot air ballooning, the root of many inventions.

[edit] Whodunit?

Who stole a set of billiard balls in 1902 and why was he the most famous crook in history? The clues: maps from 1775, Charles Darwin's cousin and the FBI.

[edit] Something for Nothing

Something impossible happened 400 years ago. And we wound up in outer space, thanks (en route) to pigeon lovers, the Pope, and electric Italian frogs.

[edit] Echoes of the Past

On his way to finding the secret of the universe, Burke takes us to the Buddhist tea ceremony, ties it to international spies and Lincoln's assassination.

[edit] Photo Finish

The Le Mans 24-hour race is the backdrop for linking photography and bullets, relativity and blimps.

[edit] Separate Ways

Two trails split over slavery in the 18th Century. One route leads to the Wild West and Brooklyn Bridge, the other coining money and TV. Both end with a threat to peace.

[edit] High Times

Unwrap a sandwich and you're on a path to World War II radar and Neo-Impressionist painters.

[edit] Déjà Vu

History repeats itself, when you know how to look. Pizzaro beats the Incas, the first stock market opens. The Queen of England salutes a Mexican beetle and Hitler's plans misfire.

[edit] New Harmony

Microscopic bugs inspired the novel "Frankenstein" which aided the birth of Socialism.

[edit] Hot Pickle

The connections between a cup of tea, opium dens, the London Zoo and a switch that releases bombs.

[edit] The Big Spin

The greatest medical accident in history starts a trail that leads to Helen of Troy, 17th Century flower-power, the invention of soda pop and earthquake detection.

[edit] Bright Ideas

A Baltimore man invented the bottle, which led to razors and clock springs, and the Hubble telescope.

[edit] Making Waves

Hairdressers, Gold Rush miners, Irish potato farmers and English parliamentarians are really tied together.

[edit] Routes

A sick lawyer in 18th Century France changes farming and triggers the French Revolution and new medical research.

[edit] One Word

One medieval word kicks off the investigation into different cultures with the same stories that ends in cultural anthropology.

[edit] Sign Here

Dutch piracy starts international law and French probability math, phonetics and Victorian séances.

[edit] Better than the Real Thing

How the zipper started with technology Jefferson picked up in Paris during a row about Creation.

[edit] Flexible Response

Robin Hood starts us on a trail from medieval showbiz to land drainage, to the invention of decimals that end up in U.S. currency, thanks to the guy who started the Erie Canal.
