The Ascent of Man

Three screenshots from Dr Jacob Bronowski's 1974 BBC documentary 'The Ascent Of Man'. The sculpture is used to illustrate the different methods of perception, but I was struck by the hints of Symbolism and proto-Surrealism in the composition.

Is the lamp reflected in the screen also from 1974..?
