That's where I first saw Why Man Creates back in 1975. There was a segment with a traffic light and people crossing a busy street.
The light had four commands: "DON'T WALK", "WALK", "STOP",
and "JUMP", and they stopped in the middle of the street and did jumping jacks. The historical segments were funny. There was
one with monks chanting: "What is the shape of the world?" "Flat!" "What would you do if you go off the edge?" "Fall!" and then there was another one with a man who was so excited he couldn't contain himself. "Hey!" he shouts to his friend who's offscreen. "I invented the zero!" His friend's incredulous. "What?!'" he exclaims. The second man, defeated, says, "Nothing."
