That Was the Week We Watched

Show Summary

That Was the Week We Watched is a television series from BBC Two that aired from December of 2003 to January 2004. It is a television documentary series that has a different topic each week. Each topic has been a huge story in the news. The Apollo Missions, launch of Channel 4 and even a royal wedding are some of the topics explored. Each show is treated as a documentary, and it involves interviews and archived footage from the specific event. Along with archived footage and archived interviews, each show also features interviews from historians and witnesses if possible. This series is a very educational series that depicts many historical events in a way that is very relatable to the public. Instead of simply presenting facts and statistics, the show tries to present dramatizations of the events, and even includes clips from the actual event to draw viewers into the show and get them interested in history.
