America In Color (Series 1)
America In Color (Series 1) 5 x 60'
It’s easy to imagine that the past was lived in black and white, but of course it wasn't. This landmark series uses modern colouration techniques to present a history of America in colour, for the first time. Decade by decade, this ambitious series puts the colour back in history, and brings the history back to life! From jazz-age speakeasies to the attack on Pearl Harbor, from the Great Depression to Elvismania, iconic images of America are vibrantly brought to the screen. To make this landmark series, filmmakers spent 6,000 hours painstakingly scouring obscure archives, dusting off forgotten family vaults, and tracking down dedicated private collectors to find the 27 miles of film they needed – much of it not seen for nearly a century. The result is a feast for the eyes, and brings a fresh excitement to the seminal images of our time.

This show is narrated by Hollywood actor Liev Schreiber famous for X-Men Origins: Wolverine(2009), Salt (2010), Spotlight (2015) and long running TV show Ray Donovan (2013 - 2017).
