A personal view by J. Bronowski in 13 programmes
1: Lower than the Angels
' 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 of the series 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 the dark of a Spanish cave.
