Dropping Science: 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes

In this clip from BBC Four, stats lover Hans Rosling sets out to chart the evolution of global society over the last 200 years. It’s an incredible illustration of the rise (and in some cases, fall) of 200 different nations and a real exercise in perspective for the concept of Western dominance.

More than that it’s big pretty graph with enough cool effects to make Jeremy Vine wet himself. Love it.
