Starting today, you can watch the first episode of Ken Burns new film series Prohibition on the free PBS App for iPad and iPhone before the entire series airs nationally on PBS, Sunday-Tuesday, October 2-4.
Set in the era of the bathtub gin, bootleggers and speakeasies, Prohibition tells the true story of the rise, rule and fall of the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution. It was called the “Noble Experiment,” but it was in fact one of America’s most notorious civic failures, an object lesson in the challenge of legislating human behavior.
The free PBS mobile app features 250 hours of free video, including full-length programs, as well as TV schedules, previews and a tune-in reminder calendar. Find out how to download the free PBS Apps for iPhone and iPad here and start watching Prohibition tonight!
