Summary
This episode looks at how we explored and shaped the landscape we live in, moving into all corners of the globe and breaking out from our dependence on our immediate surroundings. From taming fire to planting crops, making bricks to installing plumbing and drainage, discovering electricity and making steel, we've devised ways to put ourselves in control and make our lives more efficient and comfortable. We've even changed the landscape itself, diverting rivers and building dams, canals and even islands
