Readers of a certain age will need no introduction to the great James Burke, creator of brilliantly intelligent and entertaining science documentaries like The Connection (and a whole lot more besides) back in the day.
We mention the great man again because this clip has just gone viral again on Twitter and it is the best 61 seconds of tele you will watch today.
It has been dubbed the greatest shot in TV history and if you haven’t seen it, you are in for a treat. And if you have, well, you won’t be able to resist watching it again.
In 1978, James Burke made this perfectly timed shot on television and is widely regarded as “the greatest shot in television history”. pic.twitter.com/qDCYgyZNaa

The man never pointed at anything again, afraid he was too powerful. https://t.co/4Hlmy4p1h8
