American Culture Archive

To tie in with BBC Four’s All American season which will explore the cultural heritage of 20th century America, the BBC has made available online 15 full-length programmes on this theme from its archive.  The titles, broadcast between 1965 and 2001, explore US art, technology, politics and society. They include examples from classic series such as Whicker’s World and Alistair Cooke’s America, interviews from Face to Face with Maya Angelou and Dr Martin Luther King, an Omnibus programme on Studs Terkel, and Alexis Korner’s series investigating American Blues, The Devil’s Music.
