I used to love this show
20 July 2008 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

This was a great little documentary series on HBO in the early 80s and it's part of what made the new frontier of cable television so wonderful. I think this might have been one of HBO's first original programs. This was History Channel long before the History Channel. Each episode was dedicated to a person, time, place or event in (mostly) the 20th Century. From the Titanic to the Hindenburg, from Babe Ruth to Broadway Joe this series wove with depth, intelligence and wit the tapestry of history that made us (collectively) who we are. It wasn't simply a matter of telling a story, but placing it context and showing how history's effects create the present. Dick Cavette was the narrator and his particular style of nonchalant intelligence engaged the viewer, never speaking down to the viewer or over their head. He was the perfect host for this entertaining, educational and very much missed program. It would be wonderful for this to find its way to DVD.
