Video - The Last 100 Years in 10 Minutes

Here's a short video overview of the last 100 years. 90% of the video is about events (mostly war-related) in Europe and North America. Despite one small spelling error, it's not a bad broad overview of history.

Along the same lines, Hans Rosling's 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes is an interesting overview of world history. The video demonstrates what can be done with data sets in Gap Minder.

H/T to Open Culture for the first video.
