PBS The Botany of Desire

Featuring Michael Pollan and based on his best-selling book, this special takes viewers on an eye-opening exploration of the human relationship with the plant world seen from the plants' point of view. Narrated by Frances McDormand, the program shows how four familiar species - the apple, the tulip, marijuana and the potato, evolved to satisfy our yearnings for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control.
