The Ascent Of Man

In he was a little-known mathematician who knew a lot about the poet William Blake. In , thanks to a part television series on BBC2, he had become one of the world's most celebrated intellectuals, and by the late summer of he was dead. The book spun from the television series went on to sell millions. Now, 38 years later, the BBC has reissued it, with a foreword by Richard Dawkins but otherwise unchanged. In the intervening years, a hundred popularisers, practitioners and science historians have tried to tell much the same story, each time with more up-to-date information and a more acute sense of contemporary awareness.

The first episode of The Ascent of Man was broadcast on 5 May The part series, written and presented by Jacob Bronowski - was one of the landmarks of documentary television. The Ascent of Man was presented as a personal view of humanity's scientific achievement, exploring science, as Civilisation had explored art. Bronowski told the story thematically, with different programmes concentrating on subjects such as chemistry, agriculture or astronomy. His ability to explain complex ideas made him a winning television personality. Science is creative, not a mere mechanical practice". Bronowski was just 66 when he died in , the year after the first broadcast of The Ascent of Man.
