Students explain what event in history should be a television series.
What event in history deserves its own TV series, and why?
Junior anthropology major
“The American Revolution, when people were deciding to be loyalist or go against the English.”
Senior American Studies major
“The Kennedy Assassination. It’s been done so many ways, and there are so many conspiracies behind it – I think it needs to be more expanded.”
Junior neurobiology, physiology and behavior major
“The Great Depression; I think it would make a great drama series.”
Sophomore computer science and engineering major
“Tiananmen Square massacre. It’s [of] cultural significance in China and no one really knows the whole story. It’s very hush-hush there.”
Sephomore communication major
“9/11. It was a tragic event in the lives of the American people.”
Senior political science major
“The Boston Massacre; it would be a good, intense and violent show.”
Senior political science and international relations double major
“Iran-contra affair, because it would highlight a CIA agent working for the Reagan administration.”
Junior political science major
“The Boston Tea Party, because it’s an event most Americans know about. It seems like it would be a good American show.”
First-year material science engineering major
“Woodstock – it would [make for] such a fun series.”
