“Botany of Desire” on PBS October 28

Check out this documentary based on Michael Pollan’s book, The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World, on PBS Wednesday, October 28.

I understand the documentary will parallel the book, which is divided into four parts, each focused on a different facet of human desire and its exploitation of and by domesticated plants: sweetness and apples; beauty and tulips; intoxication and cannabis; control and potatoes.

Check out the broadcast schedule in your area, and let me know what you think if you watch it!
