Pharyngula

Got an hour or so? A BBC special on the Dover trial has made its way to YouTube. See how the rest of the world sees that bizarre episode of American inanity.

Here’s the first part.

The other four are below the fold.

    For the Canadians among us there are a few Horizons knocking around on various bittorrent sites, I’m pretty sure the Dover trial was on it, along with many others- including the rather excellent “Nice Guys Finish First” from the 1980′s presented by Richard Dawkins. You can definitely see the degradation in quality- I can’t see the Horizon of 20, or even 10 years ago touching the “My Pet Dinosaur” programme with a forty foot bargepole.

    You could read the transcripts from many of the recent series on the site. I hope the Beeb put up some of their older programmes as they have with their “Listen Again” service on Radio 4.

    Well, after watching this and viewing a bunch of videos from ExtantDodo, I think we might be on the right track. Unfortunately, there is really only one way to deal with these fundies imo, and thats to employ the kind of in your face challeneg that EDodo , Dawkins, Myers et al are advocating. Giving these fundies an inch will simply encourage them to believe that because we dont’ want to be seen as mean, we’ll allow them to yack and spew their crapola. I think we have to meet these yokels head on. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

    Seriously though, Attenborough and Dawkins getting the last word in makes this whole documentary worthwhile.
