Heaven on Earth
Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism is our three-hour PBS documentary miniseries. In a sweeping historical narrative, Heaven on Earth traces socialism’s evolution through a series of compelling profiles of the movement’s most important figures: Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, Samuel Gompers, Clement Attlee, Tanzania’s Julius Nyerere, Deng Xiaoping, Mikhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair and the man who first coined the term “socialism,” Robert Owen.Heaven-on-Earth-Poster
Based on Josh Muravchik’s comprehensive book and introduced by Ben Wattenberg, the series chronicles the movement that rivaled the great religions in sweep and power, but ultimately failed to deliver the “Heaven on Earth” promised by its most ambitious advocates.
Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism is available as a three-part series on DVD at www.heavenonearthdocumentary.com
