A personal view by James Burke in ten parts 8: Fit to Rule
In the 1730s a Swedish botanist trudged through
Arctic Lapland in an attempt to show that nature never changed. His journey was the first step in a trail that led through the Paris zoo, past an Oxford professor who ate mice and, among the shellfish under Mount Etna, to a new theory that proved the reverse: nature never stood still.
The new theory finally broke the Church's power over science; it was seized on by the great political thinkers; and it gave us the modern world of constant change, where 'the newest survives' rules our lives.

A Newsnight Special
Written and presented by Robert Harris
Forty years after the Allied victory over Germany, a remarkable wartime film has been discovered in America. Shot entirely in colour by a Hollywood director called George Stevens, it has been acclaimed by historians as the most important colour footage ever taken of the war in Europe. The film covers the liberation of Paris, the link-up between the Russian and American armies on the River Elbe, and the Allied capture of Dachau concentration camp.
For the first time, Newsnight has pieced the footage together and spoken to the men who were with George Stevens when he shot it. The result is the re-creation of a unique wartime journey: from the Normandy beaches in June 1944 to the German capital in the summer of 1945.
