Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring
February 08, 1993 | PBS Television | 60 minutes
The film examines a conflict that the book brought into focus: the conflict between many who believed that technology could cure all ills and that nature could be controlled and others such as Rachel Carson who refused to believe that serious damage to nature was inevitable and represented a reasonable price to pay for “progress.” The series “The American Experience”, hosted by historian David McCullough, broadcast the hour-long historical documentary “Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring,” with readings by Meryl Streep and excerpts from CBS Reports. Many of Carson’s friends and colleagues were still living and were interviewed for the program.
