People's Century is a television documentary series examining the 20th century. It was a joint production of the BBC in the United Kingdom and PBS member station WGBH Boston in the United States. First shown on the BBC in 1995, the 26 parts of one hour deal with the socio-economic, political, and cultural movements that shaped the 20th century. The documentary won the International Emmy Award among others.
A departure from other documentaries that observe history as the actions of great men, People's Century tells the century through interviews with people from all walks. It documents significant times with footage events, combined with personal photographs.
