LENS ON SCIENCE

Let’s face it - rational thought has taken a real beating over the last few months. Why not take a break from the dispiriting string of news stories and spend a weekend with actual scientists? We promise there won’t be a test afterward.

The National Geographic Society has been exploring and protecting the planet since 1888, and television’s National Geographic Channel continues to promote the power of science, exploration and storytelling to change the world. Its first scripted anthology series, GENIUS, illuminates the lives and work of some of our greatest minds, beginning with 10 episodes profiling scientist Albert Einstein. The Emmy-nominated series STARTALK puts astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson in a late-night TV show host’s seat.

Environmental concerns are the focus of two National Geographic programs. In Fisher Stevens’ documentary BEFORE THE FLOOD, host Leonardo DiCaprio travels the globe to look at the threat posed by climate change. California’s recent water crisis makes Marina Zenovich’s documentary WATER & POWER: A CALIFORNIA HEIST particularly timely. And to salute the intersection of science and entertainment, our series includes a pair of beloved sci-fi favorites: STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN and the BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise and Chris Regan. Program notes by John Hagelston.

In-person guests include showrunner Ken Biller, actor T.R. Knight and USC professor Clifford Johnson (GENIUS); host Neil deGrasse Tyson (STARTALK); director Fisher Stevens (BEFORE THE FLOOD) and director Marina Zenovich (WATER & POWER: A CALIFORNIA HEIST).
