How We Invented The World

How We Invented The World


Commissioned under the leadership of Julian Bellamy, Creative Director and Head of Production and Development for DNI, the five-hour series uses state-of-the-art filming techniques, cinematic CGI and dramatization to reveal the most iconic inventions and breakthroughs of the modern age – from the black box inside every plane to the cellphone inside every pocket. Introducing the people who shaped each innovation in ways they could never have imagined, the series reveals the extraordinary leaps of imagination, risks taken, fortunes made and lost that lie behind the things that define our world now – and will do so for future generations. This series explores the secrets of what is to come – from guns that check your DNA fingerprint before they can fire, to transparent planes that save fuel and allow passengers astonishing views of the world.



HOW WE INVENTED THE WORLD will be filmed around the planet and using a new global creative model, and will be adapted and customized for each of Discovery's key territories. Audiences from London to Warsaw, from New York to Sydney, will watch customized versions with their own stories and local high profile experts. The series is set to premiere on Discovery Channel worldwide, in 210 countries and reaching 400 million households, in 2012.
