Program Description


From the 1860s until the mid-20th century, the novels of Jules Verne and Herbert George Wells, sparked the imaginations of untold millions of readers. Through adventure, romance and science, Verne and Wells sought to entertain and challenge readers. This program looks at the lives of each writer and then focuses on five seminal works and their often trail-blazing ideas and themes that continue to inspire writers and scientists: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, From the Earth to the Moon, The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds and First Men in the Moon. What novel by Verne or Wells has sparked your imagination?
