The Brain


The eight one-hour documentaries which make up The Brain represent most of the things which go to make television useful and meaningful in our society. There one finds excellence in research, exceptional writing, meaningful development of the topic, and the highest quality in production. Even though all of us are fascinated by the workings of the human brain very few of us have much understanding of its many mysteries. Learning through this documentary series gives one a better understanding of what takes place in this mysterious part of the body. The series also highlights so much more of what we do not understand. To WNET/Thirteen and the exceptional group, headed by producer George Page, which puts these programs together a well-deserved Peabody Award for the meritorious contributions they have made to human understanding.
