Documentary from film makers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick that sets out to tell the story of prohibition. Prohibition, the US Government's ban on the sale of alcohol between 1920 and 1933, was an extremely controversial policy. Many criticised the ban as an attack on individual liberty, while others argue that it led to an increase in organised crime as alcohol became a black market good. The narrators of the documentary include Hollywood stars Tom Hanks, Jeremy Irons and Samuel L. Jackson.
