The environment is an amazing gift of nature to the mankind. It consists of many small and big organisms, which reside together in this environment. They follow a proper food chain and live together.In past few decades, after the development of mankind and the different techniques, humans have developed in every field. This development is a positive aspect, but there came a time when these different aspects of development have harmed the environment.There are many adverse effects of the human deeds on the environment, and humans are continuously exploiting the natural resources of the Earth. This exploitation has led to the depletion of natural resources such as coal, iron, minerals, oils, etc.To understand the fact that environment and its components are precious, a thorough discussion is done here. This will provide a basic idea of the environment, the environmental science, and the ways by which environment can be saved. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

Though medical science began with the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, dissection and the study of the human body was prohibited for religious reasons until the Renaissance. Only in 1628 did William Harvey theorize that blood circulates in the body; germs weren´t discovered until the 19th century. Since then, surgery and drugs have greatly reduced deaths and pain from accident and disease. Genetic research and biotechnology hold the promise of even greater advances in the 21st century. The Science and Discovery series recreates one of history´s most successful journeys: 4,000 years of scientific efforts to better understand and control the physical world. Science has often challenged and upset conventional wisdom or accepted practices; this is a story of vested interests and independent thinkers, experiments and theories, change and progress. Aristotle, Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and many others are featured. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edwin Newman.
