Now on DVD, History’s Turning Points is a thirteen part series on decisive moments in world history.
Each turning point in history has behind it a story and a set of principal characters whose dilemmas and conflicts form its dramatic core, and whose unique personalities influenced the outcome of events.
How would the development of one of the world’s greatest civilizations, China, have been different without the ruthless ambition of it's first emperor, Chin? Would the British have won Quebec in the eighteenth century without the tenacity and devotion to duty of General John Wolfe?
