I am attempting to remember a TV series that was on Discovery or Nat Geo or History Chan. It was about 4 or 5 inventions that slowly led to a modern day machine ie from first calculator to current. The host was I think English and had dark curly hair,I remember the opening animation had his head turning side on and showing his brain working inside.

Like Connections with James Burke or Engineering Connections with Richard Hammond in a similar vein. Here is what its NOT: The Secret life of machines, Modern marvels, Inventions that shook the world, Inventions, Connections, Engineering connections, The genius of invention, How we engineered the world, Inventions that changed the world. Have tried several forums so far but with no luck

Are you thinking of Connections? Early eighties I think. I recall they had an ep that showed how the cannon ball led to the television set.

 

edit - maybe I should read the whole post first...
