The Day the Universe Changed - Abridged

Pivotal Moments in Time that Radically Altered the Course of Human History

By James Burke
Narrated by James Burke / 3 hours 1 minute

James Burke's examination of the moments in history when a change in knowledge radically altered man's understanding of himself and the world around him in The Day the Universe Changed.

When humans understood that the earth was flat and it was the center of the universe, all life revolved around that truth. Then, Galileo introduced his telescope. And with that single innovation, architecture, music, literature, science, politics—all of it changed, mirroring the new view of truth. This program is James Burke's examination of the moments in history when a change in knowledge radically altered man's understanding of himself and the world around him.

Few people are able to look at human history and see it not as a jumble of half-remembered names and dates, but as an intricate mosaic of neatly interlocking pieces. Fewer still can describe the patterns and explain the parts of the puzzle so that it not only makes sense, but so that it also fascinates and intrigues, excites and entertains. James Burke tells history like it's the plot of the most interesting mystery ever written.

This program is read by the author.
