blame attribute the inspiration for that upon some conversations I have seen take place in person and online where fierce debates have raged about historical events and how they should be interpreted/understood.
Why Is That Interesting/Relevant?
If you enjoy history as much as I do it is interesting to see clips about things you might have only read about. For example they have footage of the Titanic leaving Belfast Lough for Southampton, 1912, Victory in Europe Day, 1945 and the Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., 1968.
Relevant because some events are harder to understand outside the context of their moment in time. Sometimes it is hard to understand how or why people did things so these clips might help add some insight.
I’d also say it is relevant and useful because many people think they know/remember what happened during a particular moment in time but really don’t have the sort of clarity and recall they claim to have.
And they are useful to help with the “if you weren’t there. did it happen crowd.” You know those people who claim that certain historical events didn’t really happen or if they did, they weren’t quite what we have been told they were.
Truth is some of those conspiracy theorists won’t accept film footage that is in dispute with their beliefs, but you can’t please everyone.
Never Enough Time
Now if I can only find a block of free time to go watch some of these clips…
