The Learning Channel

Entertainers and advertising executives have perfected the art of captivating an audience. Long before the era of television, showmen established the roots of popular entertainment today. Find out how it all began in Secret History of ... Sideshows and Showman.

P.T. Barnum, Buffalo Bill Cody and early pitchmen created modern marketing and mass entertainment. Their sensational tactics continue to influence advertising and public relations campaigns even today. Peer behind the showman's curtain for a fascinating look at the origins of hype, and see how modern showmen continue to beguile customers. You'll be amazed to discover how Barnum turned a diminutive child into a national phenomenon, how one crafty promoter convinced thousands that plain water was a cure-all, and how today's mass-marketers continue to use the techniques first perfected over a century ago.
