Have Some Time To Kill?

I find it difficult to watch TV these days so I set out to find something I would enjoy watching this summer.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have thus far.

The series is seven years old but that doesn't matter, just plan some time during these summer months and enjoy.

via CBC,

Produced in 2006, Hockey: A People's History traces the history of the game over ten episodes. Featuring stunning re-enactments, rarely seen footage, and the words of the pioneers of the game, the series reveals a tale of hockey’s inventors, innovators and empire builders. More than just the story of a sport, it is a story of a people, serving as a unique lens through which one can view Canada’s social history. Witness the coming of age of a nation, and the remarkable journey of a sport that has woven itself into our cultural language and fabric.

Watch part 1 below and go here for all of the 10 parts.  Each part is roughly 44 minute longs and hopefully this will help get you through the summer.
