  • Military History on television

    I pitched an idea to the staff a few days ago about creating a new section here that would cover all aspects of military history on TV. What with the new cable TV channels, the preponderence of movies to watch, all the current military conflicts spanning the globe, I thought it would be grand if we gave it all a special place here.

    Now, two ways to do this:

    1) Ask for a couple of volunteer moderators who would promote and guide this section. Search & scan the airwaves and keep us all informed about what shows and when, offer up reviews and insider details, generally keep the section fresh.

    2) Leave the section 'open' and count on our readers the world over to let us all know about how military history is being portrayed on their local TV's.

    How 'bout it, Gents?

    I think that it's a great idea. I would opt for version #2. I would like to hear about programming, even if its not available for broadcast where I live since so much eventually becomes available on DVD............

    Some of us have been doing this already on a sporadic basis, but it would be nice to have a central place to make postings....

      Given I'm watching either the History channel or Military channel at least once a week, I'm game for option 2. I think the structured part would wear down after a month given the re-run propensity (especially on the MC).
      If voting could really change things, it would be illegal.

        True, Chris. I was looking in depth at the shows, and did notice a lot of reruns of military shows on all channels. But, I also noticed there are a lot of channels showing military programming.

        History Channel
        Military Channel
        A&E
        Biography
        History International
        National Geographic

        Not to mention the movies and news specials here & there.

            Even PBS has a good show every now and then (ie, "Redcoats & Rebels" a few months ago)...........They have a history of the French & Indian War works.

                  Eagle, that's not gonna be their format. They will stick to the modern era military. The History Channel has WWII covered very well.

                    Like the TV idea. My system doesn't have Military Channel at the moment, but hoping they will add it soon.
