Television: John Adams & more
As the election approaches, various television spectacles are being readied. More 4 seems to be leading the pack, and tomorrow (Saturday 27, 5.30pm) they'll begin screening HBO's "miniseries event" about the life and times of John Adams, which should provide a pretty painless introduction to / refresher about the revolutionary period. More 4 is also showing the presidential debates in full (though not in real time). They'll doubtless make their way to youtube before then, however, and if and when they do, we'll feature them here. And it looks like the debate is indeed going ahead - at least according to the latest reports (like this one in the New York Times).
