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.
