The Trigger Effect

The debut episode of James Burke’s 1978 series for the BBC, Connections, “The Trigger Effect” offers an all-too-relevant apocalyptic thought-experiment, a warning about our over-reliance on vast technological networks whose inter-dependence we can scarcely grasp. Directed and produced by Mick Jackson, the entire series is nothing short of a tour-de-force of documentary filmmaking.
