    Timeline

    Timeline

    Follow
    PBS (ended 1989)
    One of the forgotten gems of the eighties, Timeline was an educational series with the brilliant premise of having a TV news team report straightfacedly from some of the Middle Ages' greatest turning points. Rarely has this startling mix of hard mediaeval history and the inexplicably fantastic intrusion of TV news ever been attempted. The best comparison is Walter Cronkite's You Are There, but Timeline wins over with its modern wit amidst a feudal backdrop. Curtis Olmstead has noted that Timeline series creator Gary Witt may have drawn inspiration from the 1969 proto-Python series The Complete and Utter History of Britain, though to be fair, Peter Watkins' Culloden pioneered the format as serious documentary on the BBC in 1964. And as Witt and series producer Leo Eaton have kindly pointed out, the original incarnation of Timeline on PBS was as a series of shorts called Newscast From the Past. Timeline had a long list of international producers, location shoots in Turkey, Spain and England, and a price tag of over $2 million. But PBS virtually killed the series by mismanaging its broadcast schedule (this your editor can attest to, from memory, and see dates below). Its current distributor has 5-minute RealVideo samples of each episode online; see link at left. The production companies included Maryland Public Broadcasting System, KRLU-Austin and The Newscast Company of Texas, Turkish Radio and Television, Television Española, and Holmes Associates and Molinare/Visions of Great Britain.moreless

Part Two centers on fame and the iconic looks of Princess Diana, Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe, and Cleopatra. What is it about the face and its beauty that allows it to sell products?

    Pleasure For Sale

    Follow
    Pleasure for Sale is a six-part documentary series that follows the prostitutes and family members connected to the Chicken Ranch, the legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. It is produced by Joe and Harry Gantz, the filmmakers behind HBO's Taxicab Confessions, and offers an intimate look at the sex trade and the effect it has on the women and their families. Some of the women are college graduates and others are housewives with no other marketable skills. There are students while others have day jobs like office work. Many of the women have been the victims of incest, rape, bad relationships and broken homes. Pleasure for Sale deals with the largely unseen mechanics of the trade like the difficult price negotiations inherent in the profession, STD testing and the strained relationship among the women. The smothering restrictions placed upon the women are presented. Although the series features a lot of nudity, it doesn't focus on gratuitous sex. It is more interested in the characters involved in legalized prostitution and the effect it has on their lives.moreless
