The history of the Internet - who invented it and how does it work?
If someone pulled the plug on the Internet today many of us would be fraught with nervousness. Not only would it stop a lot of people from doing their day job, but it would also prevent many us from carrying out menial tasks such as researching a new recipe, planning a holiday or keeping a very close eye on our bank accounts. Yes these can all be done without the Internet but they are a lot easier with it!

The timeline below shows how it's all been possible and who's to thank for it.
