YMMV: Connections

  • Older Than They Think : Connections used the Hoe-Down suite from Aaron Copland's Rodeo as the background music in episode 8 when Burke was discussing the "great beef race" to deliver preserved beef to New Orleans. Most American viewers will recognize the music as the score to the extremely well-known "Beef: It's What's For Dinner" advertising campaign, but Connections tied the music to beef nearly 15 years before the ads appeared.
  • Vindicated by History : Too many to name.
    • Probably the biggest was at the end of The Day the Universe Changed when he shows a microchip and discussed how advances in computers and telecommunications could link the world together, something that you are using right this second.
