Biography (TV series)

Biography is a documentary television series with three separate original broadcast runs: two syndicated runs (1961–1964 & 1979), and the recent run on A&E (1987–2006), which was moved to A&E's Biography Channel/FYI (2006–2012). Each episode was accompanied by a narration, using stock footage, on-camera interviews, and photographs of the people's lives. Biography was expanded into a franchise (2017) by using the previous logo for mini-series and movies (Biography Movies series) across A&E Networks' channels. The original version (1961–1963) was a half-hour filmed series produced for syndication by David Wolper and hosted by Mike Wallace. It featured historical figures such as Helen Keller and Mark Twain. A 1979 revival of Biography aired briefly on CBS covering a more recent collection of influential figures such as Idi Amin and Walt Disney. The A&E series placed the emphasis on modern celebrities, such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Queen Elizabeth II. It also included fictional characters like Superman, Betty Boop, and Santa Claus. With this large catalog of profiled figures, A&E created a spin-off network called The Biography Channel (1998). Initially, most of the episodes featured the life stories of historical figures (similar to the original version) or present political or social leaders. People such as William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Enrico Caruso, and Eva Perón were profiled. After a few years, however, the show began producing episodes on figures from pop culture, including Britney Spears, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, and Marilyn Manson. This move away from purely intellectual subject matter has been criticized by some. Figures covered from the business and technology world include Sam Walton, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, J. C. Penney, Dave Thomas, Colonel Sanders, Bernie Marcus, and Arthur Blank.

Indigenous peoples of the Americas

The indigenous peoples of the Americas are the pre-Columbian peoples of the Americas and their descendants. Although some indigenous peoples of the Americas were traditionally hunter-gatherers—and many, especially in the Amazon basin, still are—many groups practiced aquaculture and agriculture. The impact of their agricultural endowment to the world is a testament to their time and work in reshaping and cultivating the flora indigenous to the Americas. Although some societies depended heavily on agriculture, others practiced a mix of farming, hunting and gathering. In some regions the indigenous peoples created monumental architecture, large-scale organized cities, chiefdoms, states and empires. Many parts of the Americas are still populated by indigenous peoples; some countries have sizable populations, especially Belize, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, Greenland, Guatemala, Guyana, Mexico, Panama and Peru. At least a thousand different indigenous languages are spoken in the Americas. Some, such as the Quechuan languages, Aymara, Guaraní, Mayan languages and Nahuatl, count their speakers in millions. Many also maintain aspects of indigenous cultural practices to varying degrees, including religion, social organization and subsistence practices. Like most cultures, over time, cultures specific to many indigenous peoples have evolved to incorporate traditional aspects but also cater to modern needs. Some indigenous peoples still live in relative isolation from Western culture, and a few are still counted as uncontacted peoples.
