James Burke made a TV series called “Connections” (also known as “Alternative View of Change”) in the late 1970s that looks at science and history from an inter disciplinary perspective. There have since been two sequels, one in 1994 and another in 1997. They are all available online through James Burke’s channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/JamesBurkeWeb
