The "Chasing the Sun" series was great for the vintage footage and for that reason is worth seeing. However, my praise ends there. The script is VERY melodramatic, as if a compelling story weren't enough to grip the audience. I also had a problem with Episode 3 (the one on the advent of jet travel). Again, great vintage footage, especially of the Comet. However, there was NO mention of non-Western aircraft: the Tu-104 and the Tu-144, both civil aviation pioneers, simply didn't exist. The Avro (Canada) Jetliner was also left out, a major omission. Watch it for the footage but not for the script.
