PBS Distribution will release POV: Bill Nye: Science Guy on Blu-ray and DVD April 24 and Digital HD April 19.
The Blu-ray retails at $29.99; the DVD at $24.99.
The documentary is a behind-the-scenes portrait of Bill Nye, known as the “Science Guy,” former host of a popular kids’ show and now the CEO of the Planetary Society. Nye is on a mission to stop the spread of anti-scientific thought and action, and he’s leading an undertaking to launch LightSail, a satellite propelled by sunlight, while in turn fulfilling the legacy of his late professor and Planetary Society co-founder Carl Sagan. As Nye takes on climate change deniers and evolution opponents, the documentary explores his life and work through supporters and critics.
In addition to Nye, the film features Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ann Druyan and many other notable voices in the field.
