Amazing BBC video infographic of global developments

This is a segment from a BBC documentary THE JOY OF STATS where Professor Hans Rosling uses an awesome visual display to neatly demonstrate the rise of living standards around the world over the past 200 years. The boon in infographs (as seen over at GOOD) has resulted in some eye-pleasing work, but I find that a lot of them aren’t too helpful. This is a great example of how to do this right!
