Details

Washington in the 2000s is the latest production from WETA TV 26 exploring the history and culture of Greater Washington, as part of WETA’s continuing mission to produce television that serves our community. These documentaries, which began with Washington in the ‘60s, chronicle the seminal local events of each decade through the recollections of those who saw and shaped them. WETA revisits the major events, people and developments that shaped Washington at the dawn of the new millennium. From 9/11 and the D.C. sniper to the return of Major League Baseball and a baby panda’s birth, the region experienced great highs and lows. Meanwhile, a massive wave of investment and growth transformed Washington into a hip foodie mecca, as traces of the old D.C. grew fainter.

Notable Washingtonians featured in Washington in the 2000s include former mayor Anthony Williams; chef and humanitarian José Andrés; former Washington Redskins player Santana Moss; sports columnists Thomas Boswell and Clinton Yates; Washington Nationals owner Mark Lerner; Howard University professor Natalie Hopkinson; sports anchor Lindsay Czarniak; and journalists Roxanne Roberts, Andrea Roane, and Harry Jaffe. The program is narrated by Washington D.C. radio legend Donnie Simpson.  This program is in collaboration with WETA TV26  and the Anacostia Coordinating Council.  Image courtesy of WETA TV26.

Immediately following the film a discussion will be led by the film’s producer, Seth Tillman.
