Discovery 62 . . .
5 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I still have fond memories of this series. This was the precursor to so many science and cultural programs to come. The show presented fairly complicated material in a formant that kept children interested yet would intrigue many adults as well. My first look at outer space was through this show. It took viewers to such exotic locations as the depths of the oceans and the far reaches of deserts and rain forests. But the magic of the common place was not ignored either. From the complexities of the human body to the formation of a simple pebble one may find on a playground were explored. Discovery was an early window on the natural world before cable TV or the internet. I think about it and almost get misty eyed at the thought of how it broadened my horizons at such a young age.
