        And of course, there's the David Attenborough Life series.

      Don't remember that one.

    It's a British series (obviously?). The title is not specifically "Life," but that's what it's called because the individual series contain the word or a derivative (ie, "The Living Planet" or "The Secret Life of Plants").

        A favourite of mine was Connections (with James Burke), which was a 70s thing, but it came back twice in the 90s (Connections2 & 3). Burke also did The Day the Universe Changed in the mid-80s.

      Those I never heard of.

    James Burke is a science historian, so his shows focused on the history and how various ideas and inventions influenced each other (were connected).


    Connections was a great series, I watched it over and over.  Even though it was made in the 70s, it still holds up today.  BTW, he called the first episode "The Trigger Effect", which was also the title of a movie from 1996.

    You can view that first episode right HERE!
