Abstract:

The Emmy Award winning JOURNEY OF THE UNIVERSE tells an epic story of cosmic, Earth and human transformation from The Big Bang to today. Evolutionary philosopher Brian Thomas Swimme and Yale historian of religions Mary Evelyn Tucker have crafted an elegant narrative that both illuminates and celebrates the profound role humans play in the flourishing of the Earth. Living organisms emerged within the vast drama of the universe - a drama that continues to unfold minute-by-minute. But, what role do humans play in the 14 billion year journey of the universe that began with the Great Flaring Forth? How do we connect with the intricate web of life? These questions and many more are posed and addressed. Broadcast on over 275 PBS television stations, the Emmy Award winning Journey of the Universe weaves a tapestry of scientific discoveries in astronomy, geology, biology, ecology and biodiversity with humanistic insights concerning the nature of the universe. From The Big Bang, or Great Flaring Forth, to the epic impact humans have on the planet today, Journey of the Universe is designed to inspire a new understanding and closer relationship with Earth in a period of growing environmental and social crisis. Journey of the Universe was co-written by acclaimed author and evolutionary philosopher Brian Thomas Swimme and Yale University historian of religions, Mary Evelyn Tucker. The illustrious and award-winning production team behind the documentary includes co-producer and director David Kennard (director of Carl Sagan's Cosmos) and co-producer/director and editor, Patsy Northcutt (The Ecological Footprint: Accounting for a Small Planet; Sustainability with The Natural Step.).
