About the web series
The Great List of Everything (13 episodes x 2 min)
Cathon and Iris are inseparable. One likes to show off her knowledge, the other enjoys sharing off-the-wall theories. The two friends’ quirky humour and wild, free-floating imaginations will make you want to learn more about the objects that surround us. Travel with them through history as they explain the origins of such things as the lightbulb or pants. But don’t believe everything you hear.
