It’s a great way to brush up on your history –but some may find parts a bit depressing.

YouTube user derDon1234 has squashed 100 years of world events from 1911 to 2011 into a 10-minute clip using authentic footage.

It charts some of our greatest achievements, but also some terrible acts.

It begins with Roald Amundsen reaching the South Pole in 1911 and then takes in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, World War I, the erection of the Empire State Building in 1931, Hitler’s inauguration in 1933, World War II with Pearl Harbor and the atomic bomb attack on Japan in 1945 through to the Vietnam War, the election of Pope John Paul II in 1978, the Berlin Wall coming down, the last French atomic bomb test in 1996, the Mars Rover landing in 1997, the Twin Towers attack in 2001 and this year’s dreadful tsunami in Japan.
