Through insightful narration, rare photographs and stunning footage, this fascinating collection ventures through the pop-culture and historical highlights that paved the way for future generations. From politics to Pac-Man?, prepare to travel through the decades of the Twentieth Century!

CONTENTS:

Disc 1 1900s and 1910s

Witness the birth of an era that changed the world forever. From the first flight of the Wright Brothers to the sinking of the Titanic, these were the decades of great change and coming of age for many modern societies. With the beginning and end of WWI still lingering and a sense of unrest and reform for much of the world, many seized the opportunity and sparked revolution and rebellion into all aspects of their lives.

Disc 2 1920s and 1930s

The Roaring '20s rang in hot with the prohibition of alcohol in the U.S. This piece of legislation marked a social and cultural trend that redefined modern society. Sadly, the decade ended with the deviating crash of the stock market and the day know as Black Friday. Amidst the drought and depression in America rose a new leader in Germany, Hitler. From the Nazi invasions in Europe to the catastrophes of The Spanish Civil War, explore the decades of creation and destruction that brought the world to their senses.

Disc 3 1940s and 1950s

The devastating events of WWII had profound effects worldwide. The consequences of the deadliest conflict in human history lingered for decades to come. However, with the rise and fall of the Nazi Regime came a booming economy that influenced and improved the post-war era. From the baby boom to the legendary beginnings of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis, the decades of the 40s and 50s introduced a distinctly different society and culture of change and progress.

Disc 4 1960s and 1970s

Revolution, rebellion and rock and roll brought a series of firsts for the decades of the 60s and 70s. From the first man on the moon and the raging objection over the War in Vietnam to the Assassination of JFK and the Watergate Scandal, the complex decay of social order liberated a generation unrecognizable to the previous. Filled with new thoughts about cultural, social and political norms, these were the years that broke free from the constraints of previous generations to create some of the most significant advancements of the 20th Century.

Disc 5 1980s and 1990s

With the dawning of a new millennium in the near future and the remarkable technical and social advances created during this time, the final decades of the 20th Century are incomparable to any other. From the global tragedies of the Challenger Explosion and the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl to the remarkable advancements in global communication via the internet, these are the remarkable events that defined an era and brought a sense of economic liberation and multiculturalism never felt before.

Format: DVD
This review is for the 13.75 hour 2 DVD version.

Here are the cons: All storytellers have a bias and this is certainly biased. Please consult multiple sources from multiple countries to get close to the truth. The female narrator mispronounces many terms. For example, she refers to the sticky Vietnam-era incendiary as nuhpalm rather than napalm. This appears to be originally produced in German, so there are weird text over text graphics when a talking head is onscreen. The male translator has a super-annoying, snobbish way of enunciating and phrasing.

The pros: Amazing photos and footage. The producers have taken 100 years of world history and organized and condensed it into less than 14 hours. That is an honorable feat. This is a great, inexpensive experience that will enrich anyone.
