On the new channel H2, which I believe is a spinoff of The History Channel (you know, so they can show actual history shows on a channel), there was a show the other day called How It Went Down. They used green screen and computer imaging to remove the monument and road and markers, to recreate the view from Weir Point and the aftermath on the 27th. Doug Scott was featured, and I'll hold my opinions until I find out if anyone else saw it.
H2 used to be called History International and is indeed a spin off of that now quite horrible History Channel. No I did not see this one but I will look for it. I have seen the ones they did on Pearl Harbor and the Alamo. Pearl Harbor was quite good I thought. The Alamo less so.
That makes sense. History Intl seemed to fill a need that didn't exist, while the main channel drifted away from its original theme. Check out the show and tell me what you think. I'm sure it airs quite a few more times. I caught it because my DVR is set to automatically record any program with Custer in the title and/or info.
Guess I missed that show. I usually check to see what is on what was the History International channel since that is a sorry but apparently the best choice to find history besides PBS. I was probably busy that night watching the episode of Babe Winkleman when he was hillbilly handfishing on Goose Creek. He caught a bunch carp and bullheads.
Somehow I missed the show too and I usually check HI to see what's on. I always watch anything concerning Custer and/or the Little Bighorn. I agree with the others about the "History Channel". It used to be a good channel but I seldom ever watch it any more. Probably the last good show I saw on the "HC" was a show about what the Crow scouts told to Walter Camp (I believe it was Camp) concerning Custer and his sitting on the hillside watching Reno's fight in the valley.
That was called Little Big Horn: The Untold Story. Yours truly was in that poorly scripted docudrama playing Myles Keogh. Btw, it was not Walter Camp the Crows were telling their tall tales to but a photographer named Curtis.
