    DVR alert - MLB Network's History of the Cincy Reds: Tues 2/12 1pm Eastern

    I'm watching the one for the Phillies right now as I "work" and I noticed the Reds' one will come on on Tuesday afternoon (or morning on the West Coast).

    90 minutes long.

    Do you know what year the series was produced?

    I can't find that info anywhere. With the Phillies, it looks like the commentary (by a bunch of journalists and former players) is brand new, but the footage seems to be from previously-produced films (Harry Kalas' narration and the disco music is the dead giveaway. So my guess is that there will be some new commentary.

    My cable company doesn't offer MLB network.

    Anyone know if there's a way to get it on line?

    According to the guide it looks like it is a new special. For anyone that misses it Tuesday it is also being shown Sunday Feb 17th at 2 PM ET

    Watching it now. Marty is main narrator. Love the contributions of John Thorn and Chris Eckes.

    This is (or was) available on DVD at the team shop. I've had it for a couple of years.

    I wondered if this was something that was already available. I watched the first 20 minutes or so last night and it seemed like it was made around 2009. Still, it seemed like a good documentary type show about the Reds.

    Reminder. This airs again at 2 PM Cincy time today (2/17).

    I watched it yesterday and enjoyed it quite a bit. As you said, it was definitely made after the 2009 season.

    Pretty good overall. Would like to have heard more of Marty's calls than TV (hearing George Grande say player X has done it again! over and over gets old).
