POV: Bill Nye: Science Guy, a documentary on one of television’s more affable and educational figures, hits Blu-ray and DVD April 24 via PBS Distribution. The project, a behind-the-scenes look at the “Science Guy,” features interviews with Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan, and other prominent voices in the field.
Along with his work on television (the second season of Netflix’s Bill Nye Saves The World premieres May 11), Nye is also the CEO of the Planetary Society (co-founded by late author Carl Sagan) and is leading a mission to launch Lightsail, a satellite propelled by sunlight.
“The Science Guy show is over, and I’ve go to move on to something bigger,” said Nye in the documentary. “We have this increasing anti-science movement in the United States. It’s worse than ever. The anti-science movement is more powerful than it’s ever been.”
