    Ken Burns Presents: The West.
    Fascinating documentary of the development of America. An eye opener.

    and also his documentary The Vietnam War.

    Both incredibly powerful.

    World at war is excellent, It reminded me a bit of ‘all are yesterday’s ‘ which I used to watch with my dad when I was a kid .

    It's so good because all the people interviewed actually lived through it. And Olivier's narration is perfect. I've probably watched the entire documentary half a dozen times.

    It was very good. I as well watched it with my dad. For good measure grade 9 social studies at the time at my school offered a choice of regular social studies or the study of the World Wars. I took that class and got to watch World at War in their entirety with input from the teacher. Very in depth regarding strategy and the social upheaval, and the holocaust atrocities.
    We even had a field day out to the military range. A round trip in a Deuce and a half troop carrier. Shooting a long range rifle with tracer rounds and all of us 15 feet behind a bloke blasting off a ton of rounds from a machine gun, great day, great class.
