Season 2 – The Birth of a Nation (1915)

The Unemployed Historian returns for a new series! First up – D.W. Griffith’s 1915 film The Birth of a Nation. Not only was this the first blockbuster, but it helped revive the KKK… And we complain about Twilight!?


Season 2 – Update!


Sorry there haven’t been any videos, but, I decided to actually work on getting ready for the next run of episodes rather than doing a bunch of small videos with my rather crappy microphone.

So this is what I come to you to speak about! I have finished the first two scripts of the new Season of The Unemployed Historian and we’ll start on getting those filmed and up within the next few weeks.

I’ve decided that this first few episodes will deal with films which relate to Hollywood history (2 of the 4 scripts for this have been written!). Then I might move into films on literary figures, but tentatively I’ve selected the next 10 or so films I’m going to do.

Keep an eye out, and maybe a leg.
