Titans of the 20th Century This is the story of the most influential figures of the 20th century, those who caused and those who cured our most troubled times. A parallel biography of the most significant figures of the twentieth century from the last shot fired in the First World War to the victory of Mao Zedong. A story of the power to lead and mislead, to inspire and to cause mass destruction.
This is a series which is at its core about the four most powerful individuals of modern times: Franklin D Roosevelt (FDR), Winston Churchill (Winnie), Adolf Hitler (The Führer) and Josef Stalin (Uncle Jo). These were people who came from different parts of the world, espoused radically different political doctrines and seem to have had no common characteristics except an ambition to lead, a taste for power and a belief that they had been chosen by destiny.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
