"As this Bill Moyers program makes clear, television became another member of the family in the 1960s, both reflecting and influencing the era. The times were chaotic and TV whirled us into that chaos while also holding up a mirror to it: the assassination and funeral of John F. Kennedy, the Vietnam War, the Apollo moon landing, the saga of the Civil Rights movement and Martin Luther King, Jr. So swiftly was change upon us in the decade of the 60s, so swiftly did the landmarks pass, that all these years later it seems a ride through great upheaval and great promise?some of which was realized and some of which was impossible to fulfill. (56 minutes)."
