This is truly Must-See-TV; Don't miss these films on PBS
25 June 2001 | by Frwindle45See all my reviews

After being fed up with The History Channel, The Learning Channel and A&E (they have opted for young male testosterone shows), I have been spending more time watching PBS. I was mesmerized by some fantastic films by the Living Century that I stumbled upon. The ones that I saw were biographies of people over 100 years old - a woman who survived the Trinagle Factory fire and a man who helped invent the atomic bomb. What I loved about these films is how sophisticated they were (no wonder, Babs is producing them!) The music was great, as well as the old film footage. I was so moved by the family interviews and how active and interesting the main subjects are. The woman is taking Spanish lessons and the man is working at a university. Needless to say, I got sucked in and was moved to tears one moment and laughing the next. It really is a viewing experience that sticks with you. It makes you look forward to aging. You really have to see these to know what I'm talking about. They are really wonderful. Keep up the good work Ms. Streisand! Will we see you or hear you sing in the next Living Century film?!
