I don’t use cable TV, so I won’t see this, but would like to hear what you think if you do. It’s scheduled to air first in the series on Sunday, April 9th, 2006, at 9:00PM (8:00 Central time).

I received what I first thought was a spam email from the HC a couple of weeks ago touting this series. Offered me $100 in online gift cards to put a banner up on my website. I dumped it. I don’t do ads.

Then I visited the HC promotional website for the series. It is nicely done, and the films look lush. They may not, strictly speaking, be doing Pure History over there, but it is Art. Lovely.

Perhaps I shouldn’t have trashed their offer so fast – if only in the spirit of reciprocity. They’ve linked to AotW as a resource on Antietam from their site.

Good on them!
