Cunk on Earth

In this deeply profound and important mockumentary series from Charlie Brooker, Philomena Cunk (Diane Morgan) tells the entire story of Human Civilisation from prehistoric times to the present day, covering all the main bits of History, Science, Culture and Religion.

So this really is the last documentary you ever need to watch.

In this, the final episode of her epic journey across history, Cunk takes us from 1945 to the present day (which at the time of writing is Tuesday). Cunk travels the world and meets top experts to examine the Cold War, the Space Race, Globalisation and Social Media.

Our recent history is one of polarisation and division, as humanity divided itself down the middle: Communism vs Capitalism, Apple vs Microsoft, Beatles vs Stones. Are we doomed to repeat the mistakes of history?

Cunk will do her best to find out, on your behalf.

Cunk on Earth – Tuesday at 10.00pm on BBC Two.
