What to record this week


The Good Lord Bird S1

Based on the historical novel by James McBride, this limited series is about an abolitionist and a slave who join forces on a mission of freedom. Told from the point of view of the enslaved boy, Onion, who lives in Kansas in 1865, the story follows how he meets the famous John Brown (Ethan Hawke), is freed and invited to join a ragtag army. Little does he know that his efforts will help change the course of history as he and 20 others take part in the Harpers Ferry raid in West Virginia. This single event is often labelled as the one that caused the Civil War, which also led to the freeing of slaves across the United States. This boxset will keep you entertained for hours to come.
