Explore the ideas, discoveries, dead ends and eureka moments that shaped the 21st century. Stop. Rewind plots the most innovative 25 years in human history; the giant leap forward in technology from the mid 1980s to the beginning of the 21st century. The world was a very different place 25 years ago – no digital, no dot-com, no cell phones, no blogs or tweets, nor many of the technological innovations that we now take for granted. Using images shot over the past quarter century, Stop. Rewind showcases the hilarious and often hapless ideas that fell by the wayside, as well as those innovations that really were a preview into the future. Themed episodes include fast cars, robots, weapons, space, planes, housing, medical technology, computers, gadgets, boats and submarines, sport, entertainment and energy.
