Johns Hopkins group eyes TV reboot to capture the wonder of science

October 12, 2023

But a group of Johns Hopkins communicators and filmmakers—concerned with science facts, not science fiction—is taking this concept to the extreme. Seventy-five years ago, the university pioneered science television with The Johns Hopkins Science Review, whose half-hour, black-and-white broadcasts aired nationally on CBS throughout the Eisenhower era. And so, we wanted to make a new series about science and the science being done at Hopkins." She says The Johns Hopkins Science Review came up in meetings her office had with colleagues from the film and media department to discuss new ways to present Hopkins research to the wider public. The Johns Hopkins Science Review debuted in 1948, when perhaps fewer than 250,000 TV sets were in use nationwide.
