Abstract:

Approaching the apocalypse : The one bright spot of the 1970's was Nixon's opening of China to the West while the riots at Attica prison and Kent State University, the trauma of the war in Vietnam and the Watergate scandal, left Americans exhausted, embittered and disillusioned. This program appraises the effects of those blights on the political landscape and their impact on the trust between the government and the governed, so vital to the well-being of a representative democracy such as the United States.

Starting over : The women's and civil rights movements, begun decades earlier and as controversial as ever, continued to evolve during the nation's Bicentennial period. This program focuses on the changing momentum of these movements while also looking at the developing environmental movement spurred by the Love Canal disaster, the developing political power of Christians and gays, the controversies that arose over affirmative action and busing, the Iran Hostage Crisis and the development of OPEC.

Examines America's sense of betrayal when President Richard Nicon's cover-up of the Watergate break-in forces him to resign in disgrace. As we move on through the 1970s, all Americans are forced to reassess their positions in the changing, multicultural society.
