There were ten episodes in the original series. If I can find them, I'll post them over the next nine Saturdays. As wiki states, "The series was noted for Burke's crisp and enthusiastic presentation (and dry humor), historical reenactments, and intricate working models." And it was thought provoking. I watched it again this week, and though a little dated, it still holds up well.
Each episode is about 50 minutes long. Skip a "House" or "Bones" or "Psych" rerun and spend a little time exploring how the past created our present, with what it might mean for the future. I think you'll enjoy it! Give it a shot!
