Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hosted by actor Peter Coyote, this four-part documentary series was an unofficial follow-up to The History of Sex. Covering the years 1900 to 2000, the series emphasized changing sexual manners and mores during those 100 years, covering the first 20 years of the century in the opening program alone. Such episode titles as "The Century Turns On," "Passions Coming of Age" and "The Politics of Pleasure" were ample proof that this was not just another of the History Channel's military series. Sex in the 20th Century debuted January 26, 2003.
