Summary
A sweeping look at nearly five decades of global history, a crystallization of a massive, three-year-long effort helmed by award-winning documentarian Jeremy Isaacs (The World at War). Isaacs's team shot more than 1,000 hours of original footage and gathered archival footage from all over the world to include historically important, and often emotionally stunning, images, many never before seen by an international audience.
