This is a quirky but fascinating film that covers far more than what we are looking at in this unit -- but like all of the other films in James Burke's Connections series, some of the best documentary viewing around. Burke sees History as moving forward because of strange and quirky connections being made between ideas -- which generates revolutionary changes.
