  • Timelines.TV is the website companion to a BAFTA award-winning television series. On Timelines.TV you will find four series of documentary videos arranged chronologically. There are three series about British history; social, political, and imperial. There is one series about the American West in the 19th Century. You can browse for videos using the timeline at the bottom of the homepage or use the drop-down menu at the top of every page. I’ve only had time to watch videos from the American West series, but if the rest of the videos are as good as those that I’ve watched, Timelines.TV is a high-quality production.
