Courting History

  • Oct 05, 2015


For many years now, the good folks at C-SPAN have been providing viewers with a steady stream of public affairs-oriented programming that is dependably unvarnished, deeply informational, and always of great use to educators. And this fall, the winning streak continues with the premiere of Landmark Cases.

Produced in cooperation with the National Constitution Center, Landmark Cases is a 12-part documentary series that delves deep into some of the Court’s most significant and frequently cited decisions, from 1803 (Marbury v. Madison) to 1973 (Roe v. Wade).

Each 90-minute episode will air live on C-SPAN and C-SPAN3, Monday nights at 9pm ET beginning October 5th, 2015, and will subsequently be archived for further viewing online. Check out the series  trailer, below, and be sure to visit the Landmark Cases web site.
