Who else but master storyteller Michael Pollan could make evolutionary botany fascinating? He did it in his book Botany of Desire, and does it again in a documentary of the book – airing on PBS next Wednesday 10/28 at 8 p.m. Eastern. With the criminally articulate Pollan carrying the narrative, plus terrific visuals, you'll once again be swept away by the four plants he calls "great winners in the dance of domesticity." All that and a cameo by our Amy!
So thanks to the filmmakers, to Public Television and to all the funders for bringing us plant-fanatics two great hours of porn.
One more thing. The promoters of the Botany of Desire doc have made awesome use of the online gardening community, sending DVDs to bloggers and getting heaps of mention in social media, too. Smart.Posted by Susan Harris on October 24, 2009 at 6:32 am, in the category Watch Someone Else Do It.
