Cameron Country: Nobody Ever Asks Why

on BBC Two England

James Cameron's own series of documentary films
When God created Heaven and Earth he then produced the State of Texas, and in it-Houston: this rich place with its feet buried in the oil below and its hands now groping among the stars
Tonight James Cameron visits Houston, the multi-million-dollar headquarters of America's Manned Space programme, and travels the long trail to their science-fiction launch pad on the Florida coast. As each multi-million-dollar step takes the technologists nearer to their goal the magic disappears, the wonders become commonplace. In the past visitors have always asked How Big? How Far? How Much?... Nobody Ever Asks Why
In this remarkable film Cameron, unlike any other reporter who has visited this awe-inspiring place, does ask Why-and he asks it frequently. The answers are disturbing.
