Over spring break, Robert Watson, distinguished professor of American history, taped a television series in Toronto for the Discovery Channel. Watson was the on-camera historian for the series on the Nazis and WWII.
Watson also concluded his work on a television series for National Geographic TV in New York City. He consulted on the series by sending historical research on New York City's ports in the 17th and 18th centuries and helped pinpoint the locations of shipwrecks from the Revolutionary War era.
Completing his trip, Watson gave a lecture at Boston University on dysfunction and incivility in Washington.
