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.
