Buffalo Bill was America’s first celebrity… and the most famous man in the world at the turn of the 20th century.
He was a former scout, soldier, Buffalo hunter…but what he’s most known for of course, is his showmanship. He vied with PT Barnum for the title of greatest showman on earth.
At the end of the 19th century, his Wild West show travelled across the United States, Great Britain, and Continental Europe - bringing the thrill and grit of the American Frontier to an audience of over 50 million people.
His long hair, full moustache and goatee, with oversized stetson hat, fringed buck-skin jacket and riding boots, became the iconic image of America.
But who was Buffalo Bill and how do we separate fact from fiction? Join Don Wildman as he explores the remarkable life of Buffalo Bill and discovers that sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction.
