Today on Far Future Horizons we present the eleventh episode of the History Channel’s documentary series “Big History” that presents History on a grand epic scale.

Big History is an American television documentary series narrated by Bryan Cranston, which originally aired on H2 in 2013. Each episode covers a single topic from history and shows connections between that topic and various fields of science and social science. Sixteen half-hour episodes aired in the first season, followed by a two-hour finale drawing connections between the sixteen topics.





In this instalment of Big History we explore how codes have shaped the history of life on Earth and human history.


The Enigma machine


Secret codes run the world. The code of life, DNA, is the operating system for all organisms, which spawned intelligent life like us who eventually created codes of our own--language that allows us to talk and the alphabet that lets us write.

An effort to make Big History available worldwide is being funded by philanthropist Bill Gates. David Christian has named this effort the Big History Project.






This episode of Big History is available through Amazon Instant Video.
