An Investigation of Kent State?
13 November 2006 | by pholmerSee all my reviews

This series starred Hal Holbrook as a dedicated U.S. Senator (remember when we had those?) who is in charge of the investigation of a Kent State-like shooting. I don't remember all the details, but it did concern the shooting of campus anti-war protesters by nervous National Guardsmen. I especially remember it because I knew Randy Mantooth (Emergency!) who played the young commander of the soldiers who was himself a college student. I worked with Randy in the Santa Barbara Youth Summer Theatre for two or three years. I also knew Robert Pratt who played one of the main protesters from student days at the University of California, Riverside Theatre Dept. It was a good episode of a good show. It was the only time I ever saw two people I actually knew at the same time on TV.
