Inventions That Changed the World

Inventions That Changed the World poster

Sundays, on BBC

Our daily lives are governed by inventions. From what we wear to the food we eat and our methods of travel - it's all been invented or significantly altered by inventions. But sometimes an invention comes along that doesn't just change the way we do things but changes the world. Inventions That Changed The World examines not only how and why life altering inventions got off the ground in the first place, but also how they created a domino effect spawning other essential inventions in their wake.
