Show Summary

Search for Science is an educational series that originally aired on PBS for 24 seasons from September, 1967 to May, 1992. The series consists of one-hour episodes broadcast once per week during the television viewing season. Each episode deals with a specific scientific subject and the episodes are generally unrelated to each other. The episodes consist of multiple segments, including animated sequences, studio demonstrations, location footage and interviews of subject matter experts. A host presents the material and ties the segments together. The pilot episode is "Scientific Method," which describes the development of the criteria to which all scientific research must adhere. The episode "The Food Web and How Animals Fit into It" introduces the subject of ecology. Some consecutive episodes share a common theme, such as "Fish and Water in the Biosphere" and "The Fish and its Survival." The host most closely associated with this series is Bob Crumpler, who is also the writer. Jack Tucker is the most frequent director for the series.
