We just don’t get programming like this in the states anymore. A new show on BBC Two called “Wonders of Life” is shaping up to be one of the best shows on science and travel in a while. In the preview above (yes, that’s Monty Python) we’re privy to beautiful destinations, a fresh dose of science, outstanding filmography and most refreshingly: a modest host. It’s the sort of show that could have one day been well-suited for this History Channel or Discovery. Instead, we not only have “Pawn Stars,” we have “Pawn Stars” marathons. This is why I don’t own a TV.
“Wonders Of Life” just aired their first episode on BBC Two, and if you’re fortunate enough to get the channel you can check a schedule here.
