This compelling five-part documentary series tells the story of Prohibition, America's "Great Experiment", and raises questions on individual rights and responsibilities which are just as relevant now as they were then.
On January 17, 1920, Prohibition goes into effect. Enacted in part to promote a more orderly, law-abiding America, Prohibition has precisely the opposite effect.
Doctors and pharmacists, federal agents and local lawmen, rabbis and funeral directors all figure out ways to make money by getting around the law, from 'Satan's Seat' in New York City to Seattle, Washington, where a former cop becomes the Good Bootlegger.
