About Niall Ferguson’s Networld
Historian and author Niall Ferguson (International Emmy-winning The Ascent of Money) explains why that shouldn’t have surprised us in the new three-part documentary series Niall Ferguson’s Networld, premiering Tuesday, March 17 from 8-11 p.m. on PBS (check local listings), pbs.org/networld, the PBS Video app and the PBS YouTube channel. He explores the centuries-old origin story of social networking and argues that understanding the networks of the past can provide insight into what’s happening today and what may happen in the future.
