Preview: PBS's The Botany of Desire Featuring Michael Pollan [video]
Here's a preview of the upcoming PBS special The Botany of Desire based on Michael Pollan's book The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World (Amazon). The program shows "how four familiar species – the apple, the tulip, cannabis and the potato – evolved to satisfy our yearnings for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control." "These are great winners in the dance of domestication," says Pollan. Narrated by Frances McDormand. Airs Wedneday, October 28th at 8PM. This looks great.
