Ep 3 of 5. The Renaissance Will Not Be Televised.
Continuing her journey through Mankind’s journey, Cunk visits the allegedly beautiful city of Florence to explore the Renaissance; and she interrogates experts and historians about the revolutions that went on to shape the modern world, including the American War of Independence and, to a lesser extent, the French Revolution.
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.
Cunk on Earth – Tuesday at 10.00pm on BBC Two.
