In­ven­tions that Shook the World

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 7.30pm, His­tory Some in­ven­tions have be­come such an in­te­gral part of our lives that it feels as if they’ve been around since be­fore Cleopa­tra made friends with an an­gry asp. This Cana­dian se­ries looks at each of the decades in the 1900s to see which in­ven­tions re­shaped the world. Tonight it’s the 1950s, when such things as fast food, drive-ins, the flight data recorder, the Sput­nik, hov­er­craft, tran­sis­tor ra­dio and breathal­yser — and, yea, best of all: rock ’ n’ roll — ap­peared in our lives.
