A personal view by J. Bronowski
'Man is a singular creature. He has a set of gifts which make him unique among the animals; so that, unlike them, he is not a figure in the landscape; he is the shaper of the landscape.'
With these words Dr. Bronowski opens the first programme at Man's birthplace, the great Rift Valley of East Africa, and traces the evolution of Man's unique gifts: foresight and imagination. The programme follows the changes in Man as he marches out of Africa, through desert and ice age, to leave the print of his hand in a dark Spanish cave.

Shaping the future: cover story and colour feature on Dr. Bronowski in London and California: pages 60-63
Linked with this series and beginning in The Listener dated 10 May: a 13-part pre-publication of Dr Bronowski's book The Ascent of Man.
