I did watch America: The Story of the US. on the history channel.

What an utterly sickening programme that is/was.

Basically a massively skewed and biased version of events accompanied by sycophanctic interviews with people like Colin Powell and Michael Douglas where they talk about the pilgrims and fighters in the war of independence as 'us' and 'we' and how it shows how amazing American's are and how much spirit they have.

They did tend to skate over issues like native American genocide, slavery, financial greed and religous intolerance somewhat - it was more like a propaganda exercise than a true documentary.

Had these sly +ed - 'skate over' is an understatement. Some great historians of our time - Newt The Grinch, Michael Douglas & Sheryl Crowe ..... f*** me.
