Did anybody see the end of "Evolution" on PBS last night?
I'm not sure if it was nationally broadcast, but I believe local
PBS stations are reasonably synchronised (???)
It started at 8pm Eastern time, but I had to go at 9.30pm, so I
only got as far as Darwin getting ready to publish O of S. It was
amusing to see Dan Dennett and Steve Gould agreeing with each other -
although not of course on screen together - and I was wondering:
a) if it got more controversial towards the end?
b) if memes were mentioned
c) when exactly did it end? (I'm used to getting my BBC2 and Channel 4
science programmes in hour-long episodes, so I'm still finding the PBS
marathons hard to survive - I watched the life of Abraham Lincoln a few
months ago and managed to get to the middle of the fifth hour; the civil
war still hadn't been won, and I was beginning tp feel like I had lived
Lincoln's life, not just seen a documentary about it on television)
d) Also, has this series made it to Channel 4 in the UK yet?
