Washington in the 2000s

The latest installment of the WETA Local Television "decades" series, Washington in the 2000s revisits the major events, people and developments as the new millennium ushers in a period that changes the city forever. From the 9/11 terrorist attack and the DC sniper to the return of Major League Baseball and a baby panda’s birth, the region experienced great highs and lows. Washington also experienced a massive wave of investment and growth, becoming a suddenly hip foodie mecca, even as traces of the old DC grew fainter. Weaving together stories of local politics, sports, and culture, Washington in the 2000s provides a striking portrayal of a city reshaped by the times.
