Beyond Survival

I watched the Desmond Morris six-part documentary The Human Animal over the last week. I am a real sucker for these types of things. I think this last chapter - Beyond Survival - was my favorite. Maybe you will like it too.

It is strange how dated this seems today. I think I actually remember watching this with my parents when it first came out in 1994. I am not sure if there is a single computer shown in the whole series. There is certainly no indication of how drastically things would change in the following decade. I wonder how the technological revolution would factor into all of Desmond's big ideas. It would be interesting to know.
