Hosted by award-winning journalist and ABC network news anchor Howard K. Smith, THE REMARKABLE 20TH CENTURY brings to life every noteworthy event of the past hundred years. If it was important and it happened during the 20th Century, you'll see it in this amazing series! Witness firsthand as the motion-picture industry is born and Henry Ford's automobile creates modern manufacturing. See interviews with hundred-year-old-plus Army veterans as they describe the horrors of World War One. You're on the scene as the Titanic sinks, the Hindenburg crashes, and post-war Europe is reshaped. Roar into the twenties and the Great Depression. Walter Cronkite and Howard K. Smith take you step-by-step through World War Two. Experience the Korean War and see the birth of rock 'n' roll. Witness JFK's assassination. Feel the social turbulence of the civil rights demonstrations, hippie anti-war protests, and Nixon resigning in disgrace. Be a part of Americans landing on the moon, see Reagan Revolution, the Challenger disaster, and the Berlin Wall coming down. Watch as the world kicks Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait, Russian Communism ends, and Bill Clinton goes through the embarrassment of impeachment. All these historic events burst to life through never-before-seen footage and photos of everything from politics to the greatest sports stories of the day, only on THE REMARKABLE 20TH CENTURY.
