The Spark That Ignited it all - a History of Fireworks

Available on Prime Video
Colourful sparks, loud bangs, chilling explosions, awed crowds and terrified enemies ... it's all part of the long history of explosives dating back thousands of years to ancient China. They've been used to frighten off Mongolian invaders, support the status of kings, tell stories, entertain, intimidate and subjugate people, help produce heroes and - as a special twist - kill.
