Yup, it’s exactly 100 years of history in about 2 minutes. This shows a variety of the major events that happened during the past century, from disastrous WWII events to historical human achievements. Enjoy the video, and thank you for watching. The song used is – The Intro (FF) by The XX, which is a slightly faster version than the regular song. PS I wanted to add in so many things such as Einstein’s theory of relativity, the creation of the internet, the creation of mass computers, etc! But I could not find any footage on those things, so I couldn’t fit them in the video. Hope you enjoy it nonetheless, thank you for reading this.


Reeling in the Years is a historical documentary series broadcast in Ireland by RTÉ. Each episode, approximately 25 minutes long, looks back at the news and events of a particular year, from 1962 to 1999. The programme uses news archive footage, along with subtitles as the means of narration, to recount notable Irish and international events of the time. Music from the particular year is also played over the footage, with occasional scenes of live performances or music videos, generally (but not exclusively) by an Irish artist. The programme runs on RTE without advertisements during it. The theme tune for the series comes from Steely Dan’s 1972 hit “Reelin’ in the Years”.
