TV Worth Watching, Really

Ever wonder about the effects of our ideas about nature, relationshiops, work, money, and religion both on society and on our personal lives? If so, you might be interested in my latest idea for a television series.

Ideas and the Modern World would be a one-hour newsmagazine show. Each episode would be organized around a broad topic area, such as education. Segments would examine the impacts of ideas on the decisions we nake, the problems we encounter in life, and the social policies we suffer with or benefit from. Of course there would be some human interest stories. There would also be expert interviews. The question of who benefits from an idea and who suffers would certainly be worth considering in each episode.

Another version of the show employs a host, or chosts, who lead viewers through an exploration of how one idea shapes modern society. You avid TV watchers may remember Connections (with James Burke) or Cosmos (with Carl Sagan). That’s what I have in mind! No, I don’t have myself in mind as a host.

Who wants to help me make this happen? I’d be open to working on a public access cable show, or something online.
