Strangely imdb is incomplete here: listing the entire series as one episode, 12 hr 45 min in length. I have only seen the first episode (on the first decade of the 1900s) and it is a marvel of information. I'm sorry to see the first review is unable to appreciate the vast value if this work. An overview of this would be almost as long as watching the documentary itself, so I'll just say it covers everything: social, political, economic, technological -- you really get a picture of life in 1900, and how things have changed. Particular emphasis is placed on social change; particularly the life of immigrants. This is necessarily not terribly in-depth, because there's only so much that can be covered in 52 minutes. Lots of great archival footage and photos. Not a comprehensive course in itself but a wonderful resource, well worth seeing.
