If ever a documentary for the hockey fan? This is it!
18 May 2007 | by (Canuckia) – See all my reviews

Hockey: A people's history is not just about the game of hockey, it is about people living their dreams. It is one of the most impressive documentaries I have ever seen on anything. And I enjoy documentaries.

This documentary not only told the story of how the game got off the ground to become the National Hockey League and a game Canada is obsessed with; It also filmed it by recreating famous people, games and more in live film. No boring pictures with a "hockey guy" telling a story, in every episode you get to see actors play these legends of the game. And when you do see the boring pictures, the zoom in on them to give it that interesting look instead of a flat image.

I saw one episode of Hockey a People's History on CBC. I was so blown away that I bought the entire DVD set. I do not do this.

Only bad thing I can think of with this documentary is the DVD box set is only made for WIDE screen TVs and it squishes the picture on a regular box screen TV. So when it does this you have to remember Wayne Gretzky, Maurice Richard, Eddie Shore etc. are not as tall as Shaq. They are not 7 feet tall. Other then that, if you like Hockey I think you will enjoy.
