PBS – not just for Big Bird

I’ve had the chance to see two really excellent series recently. Downton is OK but I really loved Call the Midwife. Pulled tears out of me every episode.

Tonight I watched the second of three episodes on American Experience on the Abolitionists. When I saw the first last week I thought it would be a one hour program. When it ended close to 20 years before the Civil War I knew I was in for more. It was great and tonight’s follow up was every bit as good. I’ve drunk in a lot of history from this period but much that was reported fleshed out a lot of new territory and gave wonderful context.
