History, when viewed with hindsight, has the aura of inevitability. This series reviews key events of the 20th Century and examines the reaction to these events as they actually occurred. Each programme uses original material such as newspapers, photographs, archival footage, cartoons and music to enhance the contemporary feel.

Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
