No fancy gimmicks, no special effects!
7 March 2002 | by (Toronto, ON) – See all my reviews

This show could be described as a time machine on a shoestring.

Concentrating on the subject and historic accuracy as much as possible, Patrick Watson "interviews" such historic figures as Mata Hari, Alexander Graham Bell, Norman Bethune and Sir John A. Macdonald.

Watson's incisive questions, performances by accomplished actors, sparse period sets and costuming suspended disbelief without any visual wizardry or pretend machinery.

Perhaps, long after Watson has passed on, someone will engage a curious audience with their portrayal of Watson and his prolific journalism career.
