James Burke has spent his career as a broadcaster and writer in the field of science and technology 'joining up the dots'. Now he uses the information he has gleaned over many years to create a 'Knowledge Web', revealing how the most unexpected connections can be made across history. What he can show us is that change doesn't happen in predictable straight lines, and he has some surprises in store. For example - can you connect Mozart to the helicopter? In the first programme James Burke does just that.

Taking in Rachmaninoff and Edgar Allan Poe along the way, James Burke takes us on a journey though history like no other.
