Man vs. History
Matt Roush says...
What becomes a legend most? Try some myth-busting, courtesy of host Bil Lepp, a professional storyteller and local historian who hosts a series that looks for the truth behind the tall tales of icons from the past. He starts with notorious outlaw Billy the Kid, grilling experts on the details of Billy’s escape from jail, then trying on a replicated pair of his shackles as provided by a blacksmith. The premiere also finds time to take on a few other larger-than-life Western figures, enlisting Olympic biathlete Lanny Barnes to test Annie Oakey’s sharpshooting antics.
