ABOUT History In Motion: Century 21

In 1962, Seattle celebrated the past, present and, most of all, the future during the Century 21 Seattle World's Fair. In the years leading up to the event and during its six-month run, local and national media produced countless programs anticipating, highlighting and documenting what remains one of the most important eras in Seattle history. Unfortunately, many of these programs have been lost forever.

Thanks to a partnership between the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) and the Seattle Channel, and with support from the 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund, several rare vintage Century 21 films and television programs from MOHAI's collection -- including many not seen since their first broadcast 50 years ago -- are now available online and via cable television.

This special Century 21 series of History In Motion episodes was produced by Feliks Banel.
