MANKIND FROM SPACE

8.35PM, SBS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

Sadly this show is not an awe-in­spir­ing use of footage shot from space show­cas­ing mankind’s im­pact on the Earth. In­stead, it’s a wor­thy but dull his­tory les­son that be­gins 10,000 years ago with the in­ven­tion of crops, takes in the print­ing press and dis­cov­ery of oil. The “from space” bit mostly seems to con­sist of a CGI globe with “vi­su­al­i­sa­tions” of stuff hap­pen­ing, like lines rep­re­sent­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween coun­tries.
