The Magnificent 10

Season 1

The greatest losers, posers, construction disasters – history told from a very different perspective. The new zdf_neo series takes an unusual look at world history and subjectively ranks all kinds of subjects. Who are the ultimate nerds? Which love stories have the greatest heartache factor? And who was the greatest loser of all time?

The stories are placed in a new context and presented in a humorous, informal way. Hildegard von Bingen is declared the nerdiest nun of all times, Karl May muddles his way through life as an imposter, and the dinosaurs only realise when it’s too late that the glowing light on the horizon means their extinction. Stylish and detailed illustrations outline amusing anecdotes and enrich accounts about some of history’s most absurd facts.
