Reviews

Prepare for an adrenaline-infused tale about the rise of civilization across the globe.

From the producers of America The Story of Us, this 12-hour series on HISTORY spans the first flourishing of civilization in Mesopotamia all the way to the discovery of America.

Groundbreaking production and CGI bring to life the greatest landmarks and milestones of human achievement by rebuilding lost worlds and creating large-scale reenactments of critical battles.

Interactive maps dynamically illustrate the key factors that contributed to the birth and evolution of human endeavors.

Focusing on the simultaneity of human experience how ancient Egypt thrived while Stonehenge was being built, how China was at its zenith while Europe was plunged into the Dark Ages this landmark series captures all the action, struggle and heroism of our shared journey.

After watching this on the History Channel I decided to buy the CD not just to watch again but in the hope my younger children would take an interest...haven't managed that yet but I'm part way through the CD's (there are three) and it's as good as the first time round. Brilliant. Whilst it doesn't cover the whole of the history of mankind (it couldn't possibly)it picks out the important and most interesting bits. Word of warning the commentary is delivered by Josh Brolin and not Stephen Fry. However Mr Brolin's delivery is very sharp and easy to listen to. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Great series. High quality production. Fast moving series that whilst it skips through thousands of years of history to "key" points it is a good introduction to human history. Suitable for pre-teens onwards, some minor violence. For people in the U.K. please note that this is the U.S. version narrated by Josh Brolin and not Stephen Fry.

Interesting series but has some historical flaws(i.e. No Jewish slave involvement in the building of Egyptians pyramids?) but overall I liked the series. Great CGI!

Great series! Loved it from start to finish. If you enjoy your history then this is for you. Also if you liked this the same people did a series called "America: the story of us"

I usually prefer British docs, as I find American docs often contain too much hype. But this series is the proverbial exception, it is the best documentaries I have seen along with 'the story of Earth'

I'm not sure about this. It's an American view of World History. Either I will hate it because it's just pure propaganda or else my eyes will be opened to what has been going on. I reserve judgement.

I loved this series but I was vexed to have the commentary by an American when I had specifically searched for the Stephen Fry version
