1. Hey, This is the good stuff

I like to watch Episode 8, Fit to Rule

It deals with Darwinism, and how those theories became
a basis for social darwinism, survival-of-the-fittest economics.

If you can find it, you'll be scratching your head.

4. Possibly the best series ever, this and Connections. All are on youtube now.

 

You would think they could make programming this good today but apparently they cannot.

7. Yes on DVD

They - "THEY' - just don't want the public to see the roots of
Social Darwinism, Survival-of-the-Fittest competition, and the various
social structures it inspired.

Fit to Rule is an extremely important video

8. Thanks. Now I have to see it.

 

Who owns the rights? BBC?

9. Don't know.

Don't know. Seems to me James Burke has his own website to promote
his life's work, but don't know who actually owns the copyrights. Could be
a licensing arm of BBC or spinoff, or the man himself. It's 30 years old at this
point, so no one expects to make much money from it. That in itself is sometimes
a reason why big media sells off the rights.
