Did you know that people carry the legacy of the Titanic, and even the Big Bang, in their pockets every day - in the form of a mobile phone? Or that a connection exists between Egyptian mummies and today's ham and cheese sandwich? Surprising links between the past and the present are revealed as 'Big History' explores 13.7 billion years of history and asks questions like: Was the American Revolution driven in part by a biological thirst for caffeine?

hyper - Big History: Series review by jw

Spoiler Alert

My personal opinion? I couldn't enjoy what could have been fascinating. I'm fed up of flashing CGI and over dramatisation, huge sounds and repetitive dialogue. I just wanted the history really. I think I'd rather read a book.
