Have You Seen William Shatner in “This Was America”


I had never heard of “This Was America” before stumbling upon this Shatner video on YouTube last night. This seemed to be a pretty well put together educational series that is right up my alley. Not sure why I never picked it up, but now I need to find out more about it. Anyone ever seen it before? Have more info?

One thought on “Have You Seen William Shatner in “This Was America”

  1. I’ve never heard of it before, but a bit of googling indicates that it was a 6 part miniseries & it seems to have only aired once (either of these facts alone would explain why few people saw/remember it). Both this episode & the sea one are available for free viewing on the peabody awards site, though I can’t find any trace (even titles) of any of the other 4 episodes. This site has the most info so far: http://more-shatner.livejournal.com/261914.html
