Is there a way to watch this without the white glow? Do we have to watch all 8 episodes?

Watch as much as you can. Divide up the episodes and share notes. And I'm not sure about the white glow, Billy. Try both the History Channel and YouTube links.

What is the difference between the them? The link hooked to the History channel is like a hour and 26 minutes long and the one on the website is only 43 minutes long.

History, although sometimes made up of the few acts of the great, is more often shaped by the many acts of the small.
