Default PBS showing documentary about E. O. Wilson

Afraid I haven't had time to even read here much so I hope this isn't old information. I saw a documentary on PBS about E. O. Wilson called 'Of Ants and Men' which I'm sure some of you would be interested in.

It gives background about him and his theories and discusses his concern about biodiversity.

It was on last week so I'm hoping they repeat it. I watched it 'On Demand' through my cable provider

Thanks loris. I have been wanting to see this and have not had a chance. Didn't think to look for it at On Demand. I know that you can stream some of the PBS specials from their website.

On Comcast it looks like it's only on demand through October 7 and it's about two hours long.

Gloria,

Thanks for pointing out streaming. Sometimes I've missed specials I'd like to see.

Wilson's The Future of Life is one of the books that has really moved me.

Thanks for letting us know, loris.

...and thanks for suggesting on demand, I wouldn't have thought of that either despite the fact that we use it somewhat regularly. If I can convince Jeff to watch it, On Demand would probably be best (more likely to have captions); captioning on video streaming is often non-existent or subpar.
