Not without a few problems...but well worth seeing.

"The American Experience" is one of the best programs on American TV and has been for decades. It tells various stories about American history...most of which have rarely ever been talked about before. Now, I was an American History teacher and was surprised by "Plague at the Golden Gate" because I had never heard about an outbreak of the Bubonic Plague in early 20th century San Francisco!

The summary of the show on IMDB and on PBS's website describe this film as one about anti-Chinese prejudices. Well, this is a PART of the story but to sum it up as just about prejudices does the story a great injustice....and it's NOT just about racism. I mention this because very often the series discusses racism in regard to the episodes but occasionally this is NOT exactly the whole story and you just need to see the show to see there is so much more to talk about...and, sadly, many parallels to the COVID outbreak today.

Overall, a very interesting show and one well worth seeing. It's a tad overlong but otherwise well made and fascinating.

Being PBS (the Public Broadcast System), I can only imagine how biased this might be.

Is this where they got the idea to try this again in 2020?
