A personal view by J. Bronowski 8 : The Drive for Power
' In the ascent of man, the Industrial Revolution is a step as powerful as the Renaissance.'
This is a programme about revolutions and power. The political explosions that blasted through America and France were matched by another, quieter yet more profound restructuring of the way we live. DR BRONOWSKI calls this 'The English Revolution.' It was a movement that was characterised by energy and its ideas essentially made our modern world. Inevitably, the new doctrines swept political power away from the old masters and ushered in the century of the common man.
