The city’s youth and education channel know99 Television takes viewers on a decade-by-decade voyage of innovative discovery with “Inventions That Shook the World.”
The 10-part series chronicles the history of the 20th Century and its great inventions, such as the radio, parachute, rocket and the Internet.
Viewers get a firsthand look at the inventors’ process through primary sources, including archival footage and interviews with the actual inventors. These inventors launched themselves off a building, marched into an inferno, volunteered as test subjects and played the role of “crash test dummy” to take their creations from science fiction to reality.
The series premieres at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, and can be viewed on Cox Cable Channel 99 and Century Link Channel 20.
