The Uncommon Knowledge home page provides access to information about and recording of the American television show of that name. The programme, presented by Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, features discussions of current affairs and public policy. The website contains an archive of transcripts and MP3 files, and in some cases streaming videos (in a variety of formats) of past shows, some of which concern philosophical issues, scientific ethics, and other subjects that may be of interest to students in the humanities, international affairs or American politics and society. Episodes include: Take it to the limits: Milton Friedman on libertarianism; Disharmony of the spheres: science and religion; In whose image? Evolution and spirituality; Love and marriage: marriage in modern America; Darwin's ghost: sociobiology and human behaviour; and Attack of the clones: the ethics of human cloning. The archives can be searched by keyword or browsed by date or topic. The home page also allows the users to see and access the most popular past broadcasts. Uncommon Knowledge was on air between 1997 and 2005, and in 2006 restarted as a webcast.
