For some reason, we don't get the Science Channel anymore. :frown:
Qwest gave it to us for free for a few months, we pay for it now :grumpy:

I've never heard of 'connections'. I like understanding

Yeah, the Connections series are great. I think the Science Channel aired them a while back, and before that it was carried by another channel (Discovery or PBS I think, not sure).

Are you sure you didn't get it in the UK at some point? The original series was created in 1979, so it's fairly old by now, and the creator, James Burke, is British. (More recently, Connections 2 was created in 1994, and Connections 3 in 2003.)

For a brief description of the series and links to other resources about it, see the Wikipedia entry.
