Abstract:

In a 13 part series Carl Sagan discusses the relationship between man and the universe.

Episode 4: Heaven and hell: Host Carl Sagan describes the interaction of two processes, gradualism and catastrophism, which he maintains are responsible for the evolution of our universe, solar system, and even life on Earth. Dr. Sagan discusses meteorites and comets, especially the Tunguska blast, and introduces the concept of comparative planetology. The theories of Velikovsky and other theories about the planet Venus are presented.

Episode 5: Blues for a red planet: Reviews man's fascination with Mars and theories about the planet, notably those of Percival Lowell. Uses special effects, elaborate models and actual photographs relayed from Mariner and Viking probes. Discusses the advances in our knowledge of Mars since the times of Wells, Lowell, and Goddard. Speculates on the future.
