Legends & Lies: The Patriots

We’re working on some commentary about the dramatic vote results in the UK “Brexit” vote about membership in the EU.

Meantime, especially as July 4 approaches, we want to call your attention to a very interesting TV show on Sunday nights.  Legends & Lies: The Patriots is showing on Fox News at 8:00PM.  While this is a Bill O’Reilly production, it has absolutely nothing to do with contemporary politics.  It is indeed about the American Revolution.  The first two episodes dealt with the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party and Paul Revere’s ride.  This week we’ll have stories about Ben Franklin and the battle of Bunker Hill.  The material includes some dramatized scenes interspersed with commentary by O’Reilly and by university history professors who are experts in the period.

Our regular readers know that we are fascinated by the Revolution and that we talk about it every year at this time.  So this TV program obviously fits in to Ways of the World themes.  The series will run all summer on Sundays at 8:00PM.  Again, it’s on the Fox News cable network.  Check it out; we think you’ll enjoy it.
