We don't have a TV so we watch only what is on the internet. Every show usually has something from the Civil War or WWII. He's a bit addicted. He has an amazing memory so this should make for fun conversations with adults. Today was a bit hard because there was a segment about the KKK.
It's for adults obviously, so the level is not dumbed down for children, which is nice considering it is hard to find interesting history things for an inquisitive child.

One thing I really like about it as an educational tool is their approach to learning more about an object. They consult a variety of sources, discuss different types of bias in the historical record, etc. Good stuff.

If you have a computer you can watch a ton of episodes of your liking instead of waiting for them to air. http://www.pbs.org/o...ectives/videos/
There are also a few interesting science/history on their education wing "NOVA" which I am sure you probably know about but I watched one that was very interesting about a huge plot of mammoths, sloths and mastodons found in Colorado recently.

My son wants to watch the Titanic picture frame episode over and over and over again. I told him ...pick a NEW show!
Ohhhh my son would freak. He loves anything Titanic. I'll have to find that one.
I think he would go for History Detectives. He loves history. I never saw it though.
Thanks for posting about it!
