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.

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

The narration is not by Stephen Fry. Episode 1 (the only one I watched) was underwhelming. Apart from the annoying use of the present tense when describing past events, the dumbing down of human development to a few events, often hypothetic, scientifically unproved or even wrong makes this unwatchable. There are also frequent pauses, followed by repetition of a previous statement (presumably as a result of editing out the ads) is a further annoyance. Do not bother with this, get Dr Bronowski's Ascent of Man instead.

This DVD had some interesting points but it was rather spoiled for me by some rather strange 'experts' who were interviewed about events in Ancient Egypt, Greece and pre-historic times- a TV news anchor, ex-Navy seal, magazine editor and 'writers' (of who knows what sort of book). May as well have consulted some random Joe in the street for all of the value it added. I gave up after the 2nd episode

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.

Biased history from a western point of view primarily focused on the history of war. Lacks any credible historians and simplifies everything. Terrible terrible garbage for war mongering idiots.

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"

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!
