From the reviews:
"This 30 minute video uses motion, colour, music, and images of original documents to outline some of the important developments in the early history of mathematics, from Babylonian calendars on clay tablets produced 5000 years ago, to landmark events leading to the development of calculus in the seventeenth century."
