First Civilizations (PBS) – Premieres 24th April
A documentary where in each episode it looks into one of the cornerstones of human civilisation to see how it has evolved over time, still remains relevant in modern times, and how they became prevalent in the first place.
The episode follows archeologists as they uncover evidence in how these concepts developed the early world, as well as using reconstructions to to explain the development, The programme also interviews historians as they explain the long term effects and how they can be found in modern society.
The show itself while covering some interesting points, it does have it moments where it becomes a bit of a grind to get through. Though for what it is, it does the job.
