Aroview: An extraordinary documentary series on the American Civil War, widely recognised as one of the greatest ever made.
Using archival photographs, music of the era and the guidance of contemporary historians, we get a panorama of the 1860-1865 war through the stories of two dozen participants, using voiceovers of diaries, letters and recorded conversation. For those who know little about this costly war (over 620,000 killed) and its continuing influence on the world we live in, this will prove an eye-opening and moving experience. Voices include Morgan Freeman, Sam Waterson, Arthur Miller, Julie Harris, Jason Robards, Studs Terkel and Jeremy Irons. Narrated by David McCullough. Nine episodes.
