In the season 8 premiere, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. helps Rebecca Hall and Lee Daniels solve family mysteries through DNA detective work, illuminating both history and their own identities.

Follow the pursuit of democracy from the Revolutionary War through recurring cycles of civil rights progress and backlash, the 2021 Capitol riot and beyond. Narrated by Tamara Tunie, this documentary explores the impact of voter rights and a civics curriculum on engaged and informed citizens.

The beloved Australian series returns for a second season. In the premiere, Jodi is torn between truth and Becky’s feelings when she realizes that Sean’s sudden visits are not as innocent as they seem. Tess’ hemp crop keeps her away from Alex whilst Claire’s flirtation with Peter takes a new turn.

On this special year-end edition of the Georgia Today podcast, we look back at some of our most memorable episodes from 2021. And we remember the lives of three Georgians whose names dominated headlines this year: the late baseball icon Henry "Hank" Aaron, the late Max Cleland, a Democrat and lifelong public servant who held a variety of roles, including that of U.S. senator and head of the Veterans Administration under President Jimmy Carter and 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery. 

As we look back on 2021, we see a lot accomplished by our small but mighty team at GPB Education. We are honored to continue to support Georgia's teachers, students, and parents with free digital learning resources. So, as we prepare to ring in 2022, here's a look back at 21 of our favorite things we launched, hosted, and accomplished in 2021.

Seaside Hotel
Meet the chambermaid Fie, the merchant's daughter Amanda, and the local fisherman Morten, whose fates are intertwined, as they seek to emancipate themselves from the plans other people have made on their behalf. We’re adding seasons 4 - 8 of this popular series to Passport on January 1 and seasons 1 - 3 are available now. 

This popular MASTERPIECE series stars Tom Brittney as Will Davenport, with Robson Green as his law-enforcement ally, Inspector Geordie Keating. Although Will lives the life of a clergyman, he can’t help but fall into more worldly habits as he solves murders in the bucolic village of Grantchester.

Oliver Twist
We’ve just added every episode of this BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens's much-loved tale to GPB Passport. Oliver, a young orphan, finds himself in London and is introduced to the seductive world of Fagin and his gang.
