I hope you’ve caught How We Got to Now on PBS stations. This week is the final episode of the 6 part documentary series: the story of sound. Host Steven Johnson travels to the Arcy sur Cure caves in northern France, where he finds the first traces of the desire to record sound – 30,000 years ago.
The program tells about the role of radio in the civil rights movement and the unsung heroes of sound. Thank you to CPB for their wise investment in How We Got to Now. It airs this Thursday evening on most PBS stations.
