Why Is It So?

For over two decades, the enigmatic Professor Julius Sumner Miller concocted the formula for the perfect science television show...cool experiments, interesting science and fantastic hair.

The Why Is It So? series, which aired between 1963 and 1986, brought the genre an element that had not been seen before - fun! In the 21st century, the Professor's ability to get your attention, stir your imagination and arouse your curiosity is undiminished. And if you think his hair is crazy now, just imagine what they said back in the 60s.

This compilation features 12 episodes from the series, including experiments with electrostatic electricity, magnetism, and the science of toys
