Editorial Reviews

As seen on the Discovery Channel!

From the airplane to the DNA fingerprint, science, history and pop culture come under the spotlight in this thrilling chronicle of the 20th Century's greatest inventions. Go on a decade-by-decade voyage of discovery through life-changing inventions; like the radio that made the world smaller; the machine gun that made it more dangerous; or the parking meter that made it more expensive. Meet the brilliant, often quirky minds that brought the inventions to life, including the smartest man on the planet and the high school dropout everyone took for a fool. Witness the discovery and creation of billion-dollar inventions and financial disasters - all players in the most innovative century the world has ever known.

Reviewing the inventions over the 20th century, decade by decade, lets the viewer understand what has been achieved over that period. Though dealing with major inventions in detail, minor inventions are also commented on as the DVD progresses. The documentary style, and the dramatizations of specific events in the inventive process, help put the efforts of the inventors and the difficulties they struggled with into perspective.
