This two-part series tells the stories of ten extraordinary and inspiring people who changed the world. These are stories of bravery, invention, determination, or discovery. But each story begins when they were children, illustrating an event that shaped them or set them on their path.
The unfolding narrative is brought to life and played out using a unique mix of drama, choreographed movement, specially composed music and animation. Aimed at five to seven-year-olds, the figures from history speak directly to their young audience, enabling the viewer to get to the emotional core of the story too - the excitement felt at a fossil glimpsed in the crumbling mud of a cliff face or the thrill of an engineering problem solved.
