The timing and professionalism of this piece of presenting. While I can’t remember this particular shot, I do remember growing up watching James Burke on British television. His skill was in making science subjects accessible to the ordinary person. I’m sure that he played no small part in my interest in science.

Then in the closing seconds of the piece he drops the quiet reminder of the potentiality of such powerful technology for, on the one hand human advancement, and on the other human destruction.
