Wonderful program
20 June 2000 | by (york, pa) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful program this was. Through the smoke, an art object would appear, and the panelists would have to determine what it was, whether it was genuine or fake, and from what time and place it came. Viewers learned a little something of art history, but perhaps more important they might learn the importance of detailed and critical analyses of artifacts, which is to say the importance of informed and reasoned inquiry in general. Lamentably, today's so-called "educational" programming attempts nothing so process oriented, operating instead on the simplistic notion that knowledge is merely information. Like the longer lived but local (Baltimore) program produced by Johns Hopkins and hosted by Lynn Poole,"What in the World?" belongs to an era long gone and wistfully remembered.
