Howard Goodall presents a personal view of the history of music, from the beginning of human existence to the present day.

In the first episode of a six-part series Goodall explores mankind’s earliest steps in music-making, suggesting that it is an integral part of human existence.

Archeological evidence shows that music could have been as much a part of everyday life in the Upper Paleolithic Age as it is today.

The episode goes on to look at Gregorian Chant and developments in medieval music that provided a foundation for the rules of harmony and notation that we still use today. Find out more on the BBC website.
