Necessity is the mother of invention - from darkness, man found light (the candle) and from even the farthest distances we can still find each other (the telephone). But some inventions have transformed our lives far beyond our homes (the steam engine), our planet (the telescope), and our wildest dreams (the internet). This countdown highlights how human ingenuity comes in all shapes and sizes.

Things go from bad to worse as Britain is gripped by an economic depression in the early 1880s. As unemployment jumps from 2-10 percent, some of the men find themselves out of work. The work shortage in the slum is exacerbated by an influx of new immigrants: descendants of Jews from Russia and Eastern Europe and English workers from the countryside. Space is now at even more of a premium, and work is scarce, pushing up the rent and causing outrage. With hungry mouths to feed, some of the mums go in search of poverty relief - and encounter the little provisions available to Victorians in desperate straits. Qualifying for extra food and funds is hard, and their morals, parenting and housekeeping is questioned. The slum is reaching breaking point.

Sydney GP Dr James Best was prepared to throw out the rulebook on autism as his son Sam entered adolescence. Rather than keeping him to routines and "wrapping him in cotton wool", he wanted to expose the 14-year-old to uncertainty and unpredictability. So Dr Best decided to take a year off work, sell the family house and take his son on a backpacking trip across Africa. It was based on the idea that adolescence represents a particular opportunity for learning, similar to the period during infancy when the brain is highly receptive to change. Although the plan left the parents of some autistic children aghast, it has been hailed as "ground breaking" by researcher Dr David Trembath of Griffith University. But nine days before he was due to leave for Africa, there was a knock on the door that turned Dr Best's life upside down.

Dr Michael Mosley puts human behaviour under the microscope in this bold series that uses the latest scientific studies to explore the evolutionary factors and animal instincts that drives human behaviour. A plush country house is fixed with surveillance cameras while a group of unwitting test subjects - former pupils of a UK school - are first exposed to youthful memories to test if it can improve their health. This episode looks at how we behave in groups and puts our notions of hierarchy to the test.
