This is a 360-minute 2-DISC 6-episode documentary originally produced in 2014 as the PBS television program:"How we got to now".
These episodes include amazing, informative and enlightening stories you would love to see and hear.

The imagery (in the form of camera angles), some of the animations to aid explanations of technological developments, and the pacing are the best aspects of these programs. I found that the use of hundred year old cartoons distracting and very annoying. A minor shortcoming is that it is rigidly American: its businesses, its society, etc.
