Man is humbled by the uncertainty of what he can know, but still has the itch to gain absolute knowledge, often with tragic consequences. Awkwafina is a Golden Globe winner, stars in blockbuster films, and has her own show. But she took some big risks along the way.

Watch now. Title: The Ascent of Man Sir Kenneth Clarke guides us through the ages exploring the glorious rise of civilisation in western man. Beginning with the bleakness of the dark ages to the present day, we consider Follow James Burke through the history of science and technology in this collection of 10 1-hour episodes, starting with "The Trigger Effect. James Burke explores key moments in Western History where new knowledge in science changed the way the modern Western world thinks.

This was originally a book, made into a ten part television series broadcast on PBS by economists Milton and Rose Friedman that advocates free market principles. The thrust of the series is In each episode historian Simon Schama treats, in his own erudite, unconventional and somewhat socially engaged style, a work of art from a great master.

He concentrates not just on the art In the conclusion to his groundbreaking series, James Burke continues to make incredible connections to history's most important discoveries and inventions.

Documentary series looking at the influence of art on the current day situation of our society. A seven-part series focusing on the many ways in which the Second World War impacted the lives of American families. Nine-part series telling the story of art from the dawn of human history to the present day, for the first time on a global scale. It is now nearly half a century since Kenneth Clark's In the Middle Ages, Prince Edmund the Black Adder constantly schemes and endeavors to seize the crown from his father and brother.

Sequel series to the "Connections" where historian James Burke walks the viewer through the tenuous threads of history that link seemingly obscure scientific breakthroughs and the Jacob Bronowski, a friend of many famous 20th century nuclear physicists describes the history of Man from Ape to computer-maker.

He touches upon the history of art, empires and science. Written by Sundar Narayan. Before Sagan's "Cosmos" and before James Burke's "Connections", Jacob Bronowski brought us a thoughtful examination of the history of mankind and his achievements.

The angle here was to look at how those achievements effected events and shaped society as a whole. I saw the series when it first aired, and was fascinated by it, but the series seemed non-linear, and I supposed to a young mind would seem disjointed.

I still get some of that feeling when I rewatch episodes of this very good TV documentary. I'll also add that a lot of factual history is correct, but I think Bronowski, as a social scientist, perhaps social psychologist, draws some of the wrong conclusions.

Then again social science, like all sciences, is a field of research branching from the major hard sciences, so in this regard everyone is entitled to an opinion.

The only way to nod or shake your head at Bronowski is to double check your own facts to see if he's right or not. Bronowski takes us from man's humble beginnings in Africa, and shows us our primate ancestor's migratory pattern and how we populated the world today.

But the real genius of the program is him showing us how our advances in understanding formed our civilization. I applaud the program, but disagree with some of Bronowski's conclusions, though for the supermajority of the series, he does have things aright.

If you've seen Sagan or Burke do their thing with their TV series, then have a look at Bronowski's version from the early 70s. Definitely one to see for the scientist history buff in all of us.
