This Week on the Tube

If you are going to watch the vile thing, take a gander at some fare that will add to your feeling for the times of this course. I have tried to select either histories or films that depict life at a particular time in the century.

There are a variety of cable systems serving our area so I cannot post channel. You will need to match network with channel in your area.

Any of these are suitable for the Video option on the "Getting to know the 20th Century" assignment.
