Abstract:

A television series surveying the development of science. Part 9 focuses on the architectural expressions of man throughout history from his efforts to build simple stone walls to his creation of modern Los Angeles. Film includes Greek temples and French cathedrals as examples of previous architecural design. Part 10 explores the world within the atom and traces the history of the men and ideas that have made 20th century physics one of the great achievements of human imagination. Part 11 considers the moral dilemma which confronts today's scientists by contrasting humanist traditions with the inhumanities of the Nazis and the harnessing of nuclear energy with the development of the atomic bomb. Covers the work of Karl Gauss, Max Born, Werner Heisenberg and Leo Szilard.
