Dark Matters – Salvation by Starvation

Dark Matters

Following up on the announcement of February 11, 2013: Steven Pacey actually appeared in another episode of the popular science documentary series, Dark Matters: Twisted but True. It didn’t come to our attention because Steven is wrongly credited as ‘Stephen’ Pacey in the episode.

In Salvation by Starvation, Steven plays Dimitriy, in an episode about Nikolai Vavilov, a Russian botanist who slowly starved while protecting a precious seed bank from the Nazis during World War II.

is one of three stories in Series 3, Episode 2 (labelled Series 2, Episode 9 elsewhere), first broadcast on the US Discovery Network’s Science Channel last year (November 28, 2012).

The other two investigations in this 44 minute episode are: Unabomber, which discusses a psychological experiment that Ted Kaczynski (aka the Unabomber) underwent during his teenage years, and Get the Lead Out about leaded-gasoline poisonings.


For US viewers only, the single episode is available as a digital download or live streaming, or on Youtube. DVD copies are not currently available.
