- Eureka: A series that tells the story preceding the inventions that have shaped the world as we know it. Inventions are that which we ride in, that inside which we live and that which we take orally to combat an illness. Inventions can also be intangible: you can't patent literacy and government, but it doesn't take a patent to reshape the world. Press Kit: http://ftp.narr8.me/pub/ENG/18-EURICA/
