I s'pose it's an unfair comparison but no work of his has ever had the impact for me that his " Civil War" series did... I've watched that repeatedly. You may remember this letter being read during it...

Nope, is that a PBS show? I haven't heard of it.

Yep, that was the most moving piece of the film, IMO. It stopped me in my tracks and I watched the rest of the series religiously. Thanks for the reminder.
