Great Production Values, sub-par conception
16 April 2011 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

The Story Of Science is a greatly produced piece of documentary about what exactly science has done for us throughout the ages to explain the phenomenon happening all around us. Citing questions such as: "What are we Really made of?", "What is out there?" or "What is the secret of life?". It definitely sounds interesting and at times the information provided is dazzling and insightful. But there are inconsistencies spread throughout the whole documentary: Firstly, the narrator and main speaker of the series is Michael J. Mosley who does his very best to boast his PHD certification in medicine which is really not necessary beyond once. But he seems to take pleasure in doing so in almost every episode. I found that to be annoying and it truly hurt his image in my mind. Secondly, the events and history which are depicted are all related to the western world as opposed to a more international approach and view. But Mr. Mosley doesn't seem to take into consideration the VAST amount of knowledge which has remained since the dawn of time from African, Asian or even south American people in their philosophies of the world and nature. It seems that the people responsible for the research didn't even bother to consider any other sources of scientific history than the western Europe/American ones which makes the episodes seem shallow, hurried and unfinished. Of course the plus of the show is how "personal" it gets about the life and achievements of some famous scientists it introduces and often shows their workspaces and tries to encourage the audience to go back in time and imagine what it felt like to be there when something fantastical was created and/or observed by a scientist. All in all, Great production values and music but poor narrative and concept and a very narrow point of view towards the subject matter.
