This Week in History | 2000
Historical news series that gathers triumphs, tragedies and trivia together into a program of news of the past, seven days at a time over the centuries.
One segment, "Chance in Time," features animated characters Chance and Pandora, as they dispel commonly held beliefs. The 60- to 90-second segments revolve around Chance, a industrialist/financier who finances the creation of Pandora -- a part-human processor. A laboratory accident sends Chance and Pandora back in time where they attempt to reveal history's inaccuracies and return home.
The "Would You Believe?" segment unearths obscure historical facts and bizarre phenomena. Also includes interview segments with people from some of the stories reported.
