Back to the BBS - The return to being online (Part One)
10 waiting - Premieres Dec 20, 2020

Preamble :: Bulletin Board Systems (BBS's) were what people went online with
before the web. This multi-part documentary shows you what BBS's do, why they
are still relevant and fun to use today.
The documentary interviews some users and system operators, both young and old.
Crazy as it may sound, BBS's are actually still around today and can be
accessed via the net. What you might not know, is that BBS's are really fun,
they're relevant: they hold information and provide mail systems that are away
from the prying eyes of Facebook and Google. They're a very sociable place to
be, with messaging and chat. They have art unlike any you've ever seen and they
have some really cool games and mods.
