Since the beginning of time, humankind has harbored an insatiable fascination with life beneath the ocean's surface. In the mid-19th century, in response to this vast appeal, public aquariums began springing up across the globe. Since then aquariums have undergone a series of profound physical and theoretical changes. In this program, learn how advancements in water filtration and window materials have dramatically changed the spectator experience over the years. Discover how talented scientists have been able to make the unreal look real in some of the most impressive aquatic exhibits in the country. Finally, find out more about the current debate regarding what the true purpose of an aquarium should be. Interviews with prominet historians and marine biologists uncover the rich history behind public aquariums and their unique ability to both educate and entertain
