    I'd be interested to see what went on with both of these, but for differing reasons wouldn't actually want to live in those eras. Or any other prior to our own. (Would like to visit the 40s - 70s as my adult self, though.)
    Thanks from boontito

    In the near, I wish I'd been born fifteen years earlier. I would have loved to have come of age in the 60's (as opposed to turning 12 in 1970).

    Further out, I run into thoughts like "I'm legally blind without my glasses. What if I got there, and couldn't see?"

    Of course, this is more like me thinking 'time travel' than your actual question.

    I have also been interested in the early history of motion pictures, the people behind them and the times that produced them.

    (Plus classic rock music history, I've read a few bios and seen plenty of docs and remember much of that era first-hand )

    And just classic talking pictures and the eras, 1930s, 40s, and 50s that produced them, I'm branching into the silent era.

    Here are two favorite documentary series' on early cinema:



    This first series narrated by James Mason is my favorite.^ One reason is because it was made long enough ago to get first-hand accounts from people who were actually there making them.

    If you watch only the first five minutes, ^ I bet you will never think of a silent movie the same way again; it was a genuine form of fine art, unto it's own.

    The next documentary that is even more detailed I believe, (but doesn't have as many first-hand accounts,) is episode 2 of another great series: TCM's Moguls and Movie Stars.

    Yes, I'm a super-nerd.

    Thx

    The 60's - Vietnam, the Kennedys and their assassinations, the rise of Muhammad Ali, the Moon Landings, Woodstock etc. It all came and went years before I was born, but I am hugely fascinated by that era.

    I think of Watergate - which I remember, and I remember watching Nixon's resignation.
