BBC2 to tell Story of the 20th Century

FX drama Snowfall has joined the BBC2 line-up

EITF: BBC2 has unveiled a raft of programming in the genres of factual, arts, comedy and drama, including a new interactive history series.

Icons: The Story of the 20th Century will explore the past 100 years and focus on a particular field, such as leaders, scientists and artists.

At the end of each programme, the public will be asked to vote for their winner in that category and a live final episode will see an “ultimate icon of the 20th Century” being crowned. It is being produced by 72 Films in partnership with the Open University.

Also on the slate, revealed this morning at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, is Inside The Foreign Office, which explores the vital UK government department and is being produced by BBC Studios.

Army: Behind the New Frontlines is a three-part observational documentary from UK prodco Wild Pictures, while BBC2 has also picked up FX drama Snowfall (10×60′).

The series is from FX Productions and explores the crack cocaine epidemic in LA during the early 1980s. It was recently extended into a second season by FX.
