Titans of the 20th Century: The Hinge Years: 1929-1933
The Hinge Years: 1929-1933
Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  March 11, 2020

Masking his disability in a way that would not be possible today, Franklin Delano Roosevelt reaches the Oval Office. The crash of '29 morphs seamlessly into the Great Depression that reaches every country on earth. Titans rise and fall in the calamitous era of unemployment and hunger - Hitler becomes chancellor in Germany, Mussolini secures absolute power, Spain begins the political convulsion that will bring Francisco Franco onto our stage (we meet La Pasionaria) and Stalin tightens his grip, even further, with purges and show trials and, in an increasingly unsettled India, Gandhi leads the Salt March.
