NOVA Explores Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks

book cover

Throughout his career in neurology, Dr. Oliver Sacks has encountered myriad patients who are struggling to cope with debilitating medical conditions. While their ailments vary, many have one thing in common: an appreciation for the therapeutic effects of music. Dr. Sacks's latest book, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, explores what music can tell us about our minds. NOVA's new show follows the BBC's Alan Yentob on an intercontinental quest—from New York to England and Ireland—to meet individuals like those chronicled in Musicophilia, bringing Sacks's latest work to life through their intimate and phenomenal stories. The original PBS broadcast date will be June 23, but check your local listings for repeat air times. Click here for more information and a video extra about the program.
