Episode discussion for: 01x01 | Benjamin Franklin (Feb 27, 2012)
I finally remembered to watch H2 channel series "10 things you didn't know" and tonights (rerun) show was about Ben Franklin. If history wasn't so white-washed it would be more fun.
A few things I remember, BF was a member of a sex club, his child's mother was a prostitute that he paid off to leave, his wife was common law, he plotted the Gulf Current, was one of two suspects in a London serial killer case and started the first hospital. Oh yeah it was his son that flew the kite in the storm.
Totally fascinating series, especially for a history fan.
