Some of the episodes are on google video


I saw the first one and I'm watching the second one. I think that may be all there are right now.

thanks for the clickcaster.com link, 8o8o8o8. this series was amazing. burke's abilty to capture my imagination with his "connections" in showing the development and advancement of technology so fascinated me.

as i've never had much luck in finding this series on tape or dvd, clickcaster's enabling the download of these 10 shows means they will be on disc soon.

All three sets are available on DVD. They're a bit expensive and the distributors are limited but they are out there.

The most difficult to get ahold of is Connections (the first set). Only available from Ambrose Video (www.ambrosevideo.com)and they only ship to the US.

The other two you can get from amazon.com if you can't find them anywhere else.

Just saw some of the 1st set, my library has that one.

I enjoyed the series when it was first run. I liked the way everything discussed was tied together, and how there we "a-ha" moments.

I did see one a couple of years back that showed "state of the art" computer systems circa 1988. I just had to show that one to the kids. Brings back memories of when I was a child and my Mom told me of time before TV.

They've since been taken down.
