Looking for an old 1980s (1986-1988ish) PBS Physics documentary - LordOther - 12-01-2019

Would any of you folks happen to remember the name of, or have a link to a PBS / Annenberg CPB Project documentary on Physics/The Big Bang that I believe was filmed either by WQED or WNET at Brookhaven?  It features music from the song by The Chambers Brothers, "The Time Has Come Today".

Just so you all know.. the documentary is called, "The Creation of the Universe" with Tim Ferris as narrator/host from 1985.  I found it after shifting some items in my search query around.

Good to know.

I had looked for this online after you posted about it, starting from the song - but while some stuff came up, none of it was definitive and I kept running into a message that the one thing that appeared to be a PBS documentary was no longer available online.

Glad you were able to finally track it downSmile

Thanks, I am too.  Turns out I had the year wrong, so I missed it when doing searches.  I remembered that it had come out when the documentary, "Spaceflight" (also one of my old favourites) had aired earlier in the same year.  From there it was easy to reconstitute the search appropriately.

Thanks!  I found it on Youtube here, although the copy there has intermittent audio cut out issues as the outset. So again, thank you, I'll probably end up buying it before the end of the year.  I much appreciate your help! Smile
