<p align="justify">Jeremy Clarkson hosts <em>Inventions That Changed The World</em>, a series which tells the stories behind some of the most significant inventions which have helped shape the world we live in today.</p>
<p align="justify">Our daily lives are governed by inventions. From what we wear to the food we eat and our methods of travel – it’s all been invented or significantly altered by inventions.</p>
<p align="justify">But sometimes an invention comes along that doesn’t just change the way we do things but changes the world.</p>
<p align="justify"><em>Inventions That Changed The World</em> examines not only how and why life altering inventions got off the ground in the first place, but also how they created a domino effect spawning other essential inventions in their wake.</p>
<p align="justify">Beginning with the <strong>gun</strong>, Jeremy reveals that successful attempts to create ever more lethal weapons have not only shaped the world but led directly or indirectly to all of the following: the industrial revolution; the production line; cowboy films; street lighting; the car exhaust pipe and the development of trauma medicine.</p>
<p align="justify">Other inventions covered in the series include: The <strong>computer</strong>, without which we couldn’t fly planes, drive cars or even run our dishwashers;</p>
<p align="justify">The <strong>jet</strong> which plays a key part in our weather, mass tourism and outbreaks like SARS;</p>
<p align="justify">The <strong>telephone</strong> which was invented by mistake by a man trying to make a humming telegraph. The telephone has not only changed the way we do business but also led to the development of the Internet;</p>
<p align="justify">The <strong>television</strong> which was invented by two men with wildly different visions: John Logie Baird, a Scotsman, and a 14-year old American Mormon, Philo T Farnsworth, both died unrewarded but their invention, Jeremy reveals, helped win the Battle of Britain.</p>
<p align="justify">Throughout the series Jeremy gives his own passionate and witty take on some of the inventions and inventors that he believes have helped change the course of history.</p>
