Pollan examines the truly amazing link between the natural world and humans; proposing that humans and domesticated plants have formed a reciprocal relationship. Although there are hundreds of examples Pollan could use, he chooses apples, tulips, marijuana, and potatoes to describe his theory on this remarkable connection.
As a member of the press, I was fortunate enough to see an advanced preview of the movie and feel it is something really worth watching for the whole family – a way to understand the connection of humanity with the natural world. Above is a short PBS preview of the television show for you to enjoy.
I found the television show surprisingly beautiful and well put together – the scenes are gorgeous and the subject matter quite fascinating. Certainly a great way to spend an evening with your family.
Pop some popcorn, get in your comfy-cozers and spend a great evening watching the television show Botany of Desire tonight at 8:00 PM on PBS!
