Ignorelands' favourite TV series and books for 2017 

During 2017 we have watched a few excellent TV series, here are our picks: Babylon Berlin (Germany), Trapped (Iceland), Genius (on Einstein's life, US), Taboo (UK), Top of the lake (New Zealand/Australia). As for the books, Harari's 'Sapiens' is the best, probably ever, book we have read. Top notch readings were also Isaacson's 'Leonardo Da Vinci', Carlo Rovelli's 'The order of time', Siddhartha Mukherjee's 'The gene: an intimate history' and Michio Kaku's 'Physics of the impossible'. These features were not necessarily released during 2017 - we just  watched/read them during last year.
