Fabulous Video

By way of PZ Myers, who rightly raises the question of why the Brits will watch cool videos about statistics and Americans watch Wheel of Fortune and the Apprentice.

It's probably our education system which is still pretty OK.

Brilliant..... and very informative. Bless the BBC.

I always wonder at some folks' dislike of public broadcasting, as though it's somehow intrinsically wrong for the public sector to ensure balanced collection of information. To my mind, the BBC is one of the things that marks Britain as the acme of civilization.

I'm really enjoying a 6 parter ATM on the Ancient World by the BBC. Worth every penny of my licence money.

BTW - I watched the full show this segment was taken from. It was fascinating! I'm sure it'll be available on BBC iPlayer....
