Imagine the whole Beatles shown as 7 hit songs

Or imagine, perhaps, a tour of Asia in 2 weeks. Much would be left out, from the view of any aficionado. Of course, given the short length here, one could not expect otherwise. In my case, I was ramping up from shorter to longer British history books, and wanted a background sketch to refresh some general recollections and set a tone. So, this worked alright for that.
