Botany of Desire

Episode 1 of 1

THE BOTANY OF DESIRE brings Michael Pollan's best-selling book of the same name to television, showing how human desires are an essential, intricate part of natural history. The program explores the natural history of four plants -- the apple, the tulip, marijuana and the potato -- and the corresponding human desires -- sweetness, beauty, intoxication and controlling nature -- that link their destinies to our own.
