Historic Accuracy

I only watched a small part of HBO’s John Adams mini-series, but I have been following J.Bell’s posts about it at Boston 1775.  (Bell is probably better known here for his blog Oz and Ends.)  I’m fascinated because again we are dealing with the complex issue of how best to tell history.  When is the telling true and when is it fiction?   How much of each do we need so that audiences today can relate?  Fascinating stuff.  And here is more (with a quote from Bell): Historically accurate TV? A revolutionary idea. – The Boston Globe
