Die Geschichte der Menschheit - leicht gekürzt in production

Story

When an alien spaceship in the distant future finds the "Golden Record" of the interstellar space probe "Voyager" launched in 1977, the highly developed tentacled beings are astonished: On the golden data disk opens a hologram of Professor Dr. Georg Friedle, who leads through a 90-minute film about the "history of mankind". In numerous concise episodes, we are confronted, among other things, with our Stone Age ancestors and their dubious role models, observe the chaotic construction of the Great Wall of China by two Berlin craftsmen, learn the secret identity of Jesus Christ, are present at Klaus Störtebeker's last minutes and learn the real reason for the sinking of the Titanic. Baffled, irritated and finally even strongly annoyed, the aliens set course for earth ...
