Interesting YouTube Channels: History Time

October 6, 2020 3 comments

Occasionally I come across YouTube channels whose content far surpasses anything you can find on network and cable TV. Most of these channels are.. should we say.. specialty channels dealing with topics ranging from guns and ammunition, older computers, electronic gadgets, visual astronomy, geology and a lot of stuff most of you might not be interested. However this is one of those which I think many of you might find interesting.

Link to YouTube Channel: History Time

Here is one of their latest videos about a topic (Origins of Sea people and their role in Bronze age collapse) which is far more extensive and detailed than anything you produced by BBC, NPR etc. In contrast to many other documentaries on this subject, it does not put too much weight on one hypothesis- which is a good sign.

And here is a link to another of their YouTube Channels: History of the Earth

In this videos on their other channel, they talk about Late Heavy Bombardment (by very large asteroids and planetoids) in the early solar system- something which occurred after planets were formed in close to their current positions and locations. The thing is.. we can see the effects of this bombardment on Moon, Mars, Mercury but not on Earth or Venus- though the later has not well studied. One of the more interesting questions is how life on early earth, which we are almost certain existed in the form of microbes survived the last phase of this planetary bombardment. Interesting short documentary about a fairly obscure topic.
