God, evolution, the rise of a living machine, theology, humanism and a Vulcan named Spock. It’s all in Robert Wise’s adaptation of Star Trek mythology.

Its a great series. The hosts are fun to listen to and they have some good insights into the films.

They also have a series of podcasts called Watching the Directors.

Netflix didn't have a copy of Photographing Fairies?
