What’s on the Tivo, DVR, DVD

The various digital video recording and playback devices around the house have gathered together quite a nice collection of interesting fare for the next rainy weekend — which I absolutely insist will not be this weekend. (Enough of this London on the Hudson crapola!)

Musical Minds:  Oliver Sachs, Nova (on line)

Guns, Germs & Steel: Jared Diamond, PBS 3 parts

The Music Instinct: Science & Song: Bobby McFerrin and Daniel Levitin 3 part series

The Ascent of Money: Niall Ferguson, 4 parts PBS/DVD (see this clip)

And finally, as a little counter-programming to all this intellectual fare:

Jim Jeffries HBO If you have never seen this Australian comedian before, brace, yourself. Very funny (but crudely blunt).
