The company that Eileen works for, and which she eventually sues for sexual discrimination, is referred to throughout as "D,C and H." We learn those letters stand for "Dewey, Conham, and Howe" - an ancient joke-name for a law firm (along with its variations "Dewey, Cheatam and Howe" and "Cheatam and Steele"). See more »

This Mini-Series would have been a lot better without the entire production being a shameful promo for the soundtrack. Many times I could not even hear the dialog or many of the news clips from the 70s because of these shameful plugs. It was so obvious. The shame of it all, is that if you can get by this ruthless music promotion; The film was pretty good. Basically you had 4 people,of a clique, that protested the Vietnam war at Kent University. National Guard, tragedy and the film flows from there. Basically the film explores the different roads the 4 main characters take on life's journey. Exploring their individual political ideologies,hopes, dreams , tragedies and just life in general. In this clique we had upper middle class brother and sister, lovelorn female friend and young prideful black male. The stories meshed interwoven with actual trials and tribulations of the decades news. The premise was wonderful , the acting so so and nonstop loud music drowning out the substance of the film was annoying. Even though the film was barely average,it is still watchable. Just do not expect Shakespare.
