All five episodes of the award-winning Channel 4 series in which Howard Goodall pinpoints what he considers to be the five most important moments in the history of Western music. Rather than cataloguing every event in over a thousand years of music history, the series looks in detail at particular moments in time where the ideas and actions of one person changed the course of Western music forever. Episodes are: 'The Thin Red Line: Guido of Arezzo and the Invention of Notation', 'The Inventing of Opera', 'Accidentals will Happen: The Invention of Equal Temperament', 'Bartolomeo Cristofori and his Amazing Loud and Soft Machine' and 'Mary and Her Little Lamb: The Invention of Recorded Sound'.
