How We Got to Now with Steven Johnson

Innovation expert Steven Johnson charts the twists and turns of history, science, business and technology that have brought us to where we are today.

With a blend of location filming, imaginative graphics and stylish action sequences, the series untangles the web of ideas that made each of our 'modern miracles' possible.

Discover just how big a role sound has played in the world of medicine, how one man deliberately poisoned the water supply of 200,000 people but transformed the way we live today, and how the invention of the mirror gave rise to the greatest cultural movement of our time, the Renaissance.

Revealing the intense rivalries, astounding fortunes made and lost, terrible disappointments and moments of heroic achievement, it tells the stories of the unlikely people whose passion for problem-solving led to astonishing practical solutions and inventions that changed the world.

Genre: Documentary, Wildlife, Afrikaans


Afrikaans version of the award-winning documentary on the rhino poaching crisis featuring interviews with rangers, prosecutors, vets, orphan rehabilitators, activists, private rhino owners, forensic and police investigators.

Wildlife television presenter Bonné de Bod and filmmaker Susan Scott sold their homes, left their jobs, moved in with their mothers and gave up three years of their lives to make this film.

What started out as a six-month documentary film on the crisis turned into a passion project for the two award-winning filmmakers.

In addition to ploughing their own financial resources into the film, the two received grants and public funding to make the film.

Winning 23 awards and officially selected for 30 film festivals, this acclaimed film takes you on a rollercoaster ride between Africa and Asia.

These first time filmmakers embed themselves on the front-lines of the rhino poaching crisis where they are given exclusive access to the war unfolding.

Carving out six months for the project, the two women quickly find themselves immersed in a world far larger and more dangerous than they had imagined, only emerging from their odyssey four years later.

From budget friendly to pricey, Tiny House Nation is not your typical design show, but one that proves size doesn't always matter - it's creativity that counts.
