Where else could you find this??
As someone who enjoys keeping up with current events I enjoyed being able to watch news storys live as they were unfolding back before I was even born! I downloaded the Robert Kennedy story and thought it was very interesting to see the news reports from the day it happened. This is raw, uncut, unedited news coverage and definately a part of history in itself. If you want to find out how major news storys of our time or before went down then I would definately suggest this series!!!
not what i thought
i purchased "The Anatomy of Grey's Anatomy" after watching the preview which shows Shonda discussing the show and i thought it was a special on the show grey;s anatomy and it would includ echaracter and actor information with behind the scenes access, etc. not quite. there is a bit of that but the special really shows 3 real life cases that where used as examples for cases on grey's anatomy. if u are a crazy die hard grey's fan, u may like this but i was dissappointed. not what i thought i was buying. very loosely based on grey's anatomy, more about actual medical stories.
Good - Depends on your interests
ABC News produces informative and well researched news specials. I like the variety of topics. If you have an interest in any of the offerings you can rely on receiving interesting, well-produced content. But...news is not for everyone! I downloaded 4 programs and was happy with them all.
