Two Special Friends

Our favorite BK program of all time - These are publicity pictures for The New Explorers so there is no formal credit to be given, but we believe they were distributed by WTTW/Chicago.

BK from The New Explorers episode "Super Seeds"

(1993) Bill Kurtis and The New Explorers team traveled to Cali, Colombia to learn about the biotechnology used to produce stronger crops and ways in which farmers learn new agricultural techniques in "Super Seeds."

'Don't Judge a Book'

(1993) Plastic surgeon Dr. Rafael Lee of the University of Chicago discussed his discovery of a new use for a common drug to treat high blood pressure in "Don't Judge a Book."


(1993) Dr. Mae Jamison, the first African-American woman in space, demonstated scientific experiments in the weightlessness of space in "Endeavour."

"Running Out of Time"
