outstanding mini-series on the turbulent 60s by PBS
27 May 2005 | by larryficksSee all my reviews

This is an outstanding mini-series done in 1991 by PBS. It shows actual footage of the 1950s and 1960s people, events, and changes that took place done in narrative dialog by the people who really lived thru the experience. It is broken down in segments, each 1 hour long, showing and the events and outcomes from the late 50s up thru 1970. I have used as an teaching aid in both High school and college courses. It is in black and white from the original film footages. A must for all to re-see or see and to be used in teaching the unique events and changes that took place in the 1960s.. The parallels to the 2000s is scarily quite similar and familiar.
