Professor Walker explains the good things that happen to your brain and body when you get a proper amount of sleep, and what you can do to improve your sleep.

#2004 Teach Me Something New - South Florida
Burt’s son Nicholas has been traveling with film crews since he was a year old and on each trip, he learned something new. In this program, Nicholas joins his dad in South Florida, to learn a few new skills — how to surf fish, how to scuba dive, how to take photographs in a bird sanctuary, and how to cook and eat a lobster.

#2005 The History & Future Of Communication , Part 1
This is the first of two programs that trace the history and future of communication. Burt takes a look at the development of writing, the early cave paintings, the ideagram, and the 7,000-year history of communication in China. He also checks out the earliest telephones, the first mobile phones, and the first days of Google, Microsoft, and Apple.

#2006 The History & Future Of Communication, Part 2
In this second of two programs that trace the history and future of communication, Burt takes a look at some of the amazing things people are doing with their mobile phones. We see how a mobile phone mounted on the helmet of a blind skier allows her to compete in the Paralympics, how mobile phones are being used to test for vision problems in young children, and how they are being used to track sounds in the rainforest and spot illegal loggers.
