Continuing it’s partnership with the BBC (a torrid love affair that’s produced “LIFE” and “Planet Earth”), Discovery Communications today announced a new television event titled “History of the World”.

The eight-part series will cover some 20,000 years of human history (sorry, Creationists) and will combine “stunning dramatic reconstruction, innovative computer graphics and gripping storytelling to reveal the events, conflicts and characters that have shaped our destiny.”

“No one has captured 20,000 years of human history quite like this before,” said Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel and President of Science Channel. “Beginning at the end of the last Ice Age and ending in our modern age, each tells the stories of real people, their civilizations, cultures, successes, and crashing failures. A story that charts progress, development and change through the centuries, and that reminds us of where we came from – and where we are now.”

Sorry, but I can’t help humming the tune from “The Inquisition” featured in Mel Brooks’ own “History of the World”.

Discovery/BBC have yet to announce a release date.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
