Revolutions: Ideas That Changed The World


Jim Al-Khalili explores the story of six major inventions: the aeroplane, the car, the rocket, the smartphone, the telescope and the robot. While now commonplace, they are the endpoint of thousands of years of thought, experiment, sacrifice, determination and inspiration. `Revolutions: Ideas That Changed The World' also explores some of the most important visionaries of human history: Galilei Galileo, Leonardo Da Vinci, female pioneers Ada Lovelace and Bertha Benz, and medieval scholar Ibn al-Haytham, among others.
