Worthless Paper Money is Nothing New - Connections

If the BBC had anything to do with this show today it wouldn't exist. Examine these bills and ask yourself if the meaning of words printed on money matter...

From the Connections Wikipedia page:
" Connections was a ten-episode documentary television series created and narrated by science historian James Burke. The series was produced and directed by Mick Jackson of the BBC Science & Features Department and first aired in 1978 (1979 in the USA). It took an interdisciplinary approach to the history of science and invention and demonstrates how various discoveries, scientific achievements, and historical world events built off one another in an interconnected way to bring about particular aspects of modern technology. The series is well-known for Burke's impeccable narration (especially its dry humour), historical reenactments, intricate working models, skillful use of classical music (most notably Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi, or "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana), and shots on location as far afield as Penang (Malaysia)."

    The BBC still supports the work of Adam Curtis. His work is far more contentious and politically contentious than anything Burke ever did.
