Witness to Yesterday (Series) (1974-75; 1998)

Sponsored by Shell Canada Limited in 1974, Witness to Yesterday offered a fresh and fascinating perspective on history: the interpretations of historical events by many of the major personalities who took part in those events. Through a combination of detailed research and some of the finest actors, such great personalities as Queen Victoria and Alexander the Great were re-created. The interviewer was broadcast journalist, writer, director, and producer Patrick Watson. Watson's questions were designed to explore the myths and theories that had developed over the years concerning the lives and times of the great figures of history.

A new series of Witness to Yesterday episodes were produced for History Television, with Watson as host and interviewer in 1998.
