Biography

 

Burke was born in Derry, Northern Ireland. He was educated at Maidstone Grammar School and at Jesus College, Oxford, where he studied Middle English, eventually obtaining an M.A. degree. Upon graduation he moved to Italy, where at the British School in Bologna he was lecturer in English and director of studies, 1961–63. He also lectured at the University of Urbino. Thereafter he was headmaster of the English School in Rome, 1963–65. He was involved in the creation of an English–Italian dictionary, and the publication of an art encyclopedia.[citation needed]

Burke’s entry into television was explained by the American People magazine in 1979: “Television beckoned by chance one day on a Rome bus. Spotting an ad for a reporter for the local bureau of Britain’s Granada Television, he says, ‘I decided if the bus stopped at the next corner I would get off and apply for the job.’ It did, he did, and the next thing he knew ‘we went straight off to Sicily to do a series on the Mafia.'”[3]

In 1966, he moved to London and joined the Science and Features Department of the BBC, for which he was host or co-host of several programmes. He also worked as an instructor in English as a Foreign Language at the Regency Language School in Ramsgate.[citation needed]

Burke established his reputation as a reporter on the BBC1 science series Tomorrow’s World and went on to present The Burke Special. He was BBC television’s science anchorman and chief reporter for the Apollo missions, as the main presenter of the BBC’s coverage of the first moon landing in 1969.[citation needed]

In collaboration with Mick Jackson, he produced the ten-part documentary series Connections (1978), which was broadcast on the BBC, and subsequently on PBS in the United States. Connections traced the historical relationships between invention and discovery: each episode chronicled a particular path of technological development. Connections was the most-watched PBS television series up to that time. It was followed by the twenty-part Connections2 (1994) and the ten-part Connections3 (1997). Connections: An Alternative View of Change was broadcast in more than fifty countries and the companion book Connections: An Alternative History of Technology (1978) sold well.[citation needed] In 1980, Burke created and Jackson produced the six-part BBC series The Real Thing, about perception.

In 1985, Burke, with Richard Reisz and John Lynch, produced the ten-part television series The Day the Universe Changed (revised 1995), focusing on the philosophical aspects of scientific change in Western culture.

Burke has been a regular writer for Scientific American and Time, and a consultant to the SETI project.[citation needed]

Burke received the gold and the silver medals of the Royal Television Society. In 1998 he was made an honorary fellow of the Society for Technical Communication.[4]

Burke has contributed to podcasts, such as in 2008 when he appeared on Hardcore History with Dan Carlin,[5] and in 2016 on Common Sense with Dan Carlin,[6] and to newspaper articles including two series for the Mogollon Connection by Jesse Horn, one focusing on the nature of morality,[7] the other on the future of our youth.[8]

Burke presented a monologue James Burke on the End of Scarcity, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 26 December 2017, in which he predicted nanotech-manufacturing would revolutionize the world economy and society
