| A century in 26 episodes
This series is amazing. A complete history of the 20th century in 26 episodes. It covers all facets of the times. From the hope perceived in 1900 to the new hopes expectant in 1999. The historical film footage is excellent and apt. The script and narration are concise and informative but with the emphasis on the experiences of ordinary people. It would appear that US viewers had different narrators - John Forsythe and Alfre Woodard. The British version used little known, but professional, narrators - Sean Barrett and Veronika Hyks (though IMDb does not credit Veronika on this site) who are excellent. The series concentration on peoples recollection of events as well as visual footage sets it apart from other documentaries. I have seen and recorded all, but one, of the episodes and recommend it without hesitation. Each episode centres on a theme which may span anything from a few years (1929 - Breadline) to almost the whole century (1970 - Half the People). I am currently transferring my video recordings onto DVD as it would appear to be difficult to attain copies of this series which is a definite shame. Hopefully, someday someone will wake up to the value of this series and make it more universally available.
