In reply to: OriginalJB 's message, "OT / Streaming Schedule Alert - Wed. the 15th is "Jackie Robinson Day". PBS.org will be streaming the Ken Burns movie on Jackie Robinson." on Tuesday, April 14, 02:49:11pm

Apparently & unfortunately no longer available on Netflix as of Feb. (Those which are available listed below):

-The War – perhaps one of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s finest and definitive titles to date. It documents across seven episodes World War II with soldiers accounts of the battles that took place. If you’re going to watch any of the four titles listed here, it should be this one.

-The Civil War – This documentary series is groundbreaking that looks back to the mid-1800s and looks at the key moments of the American civil war.

-The Roosevelts: An Intimate History – Series that released in 2014 that profiles members of the Roosevelt family including Theodor, Franklin, and Eleanor.

-Prohibition: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick – Takes us back to the inclusion of the 18th Amendment while also looking at the ban on alcohol and the repeal of Prohibition.

==> Available on Netflix...This list might not be complete(?):

-Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War – “This film documents the story of minister Waitstill Sharp and his wife, Martha, who risked everything to save thousands of refugees fleeing the Nazis.”

-The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick – “Ken Burns presents an epic 10-part, 18-hour chronicle of the Vietnam War, featuring the soldiers, protesters, politicians and families that lived it.”

-Ken Burns: The West – “Historian Ken Burns and his team bring to life the challenges Americans faced in the 19th century as they embarked on westward expansion.”

-The Mayo Clinic – “A look at how a world-renowned medical institution prioritizes patients’ needs and has adapted to healthcare’s evolving demands for over 150 years.”
