Never Another Like It
24 July 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The Sixties series shows us how a single year could have about as much impact as any in American history. In 1968, we had the assassinations of Martin Luther KIng and Bobby Kennedy. We had the election of Richard Nixon and then the Watergate scandal. Then there was the Democratic Convention in Chicago. We have the resignation of Spiro T. Agnew, a true crook. This is all packed into about 50 minutes. These turbulent events show that what we are experiencing today is nothing new. Racism is still in abundance. Dirty politics are the same old same old. There is excellent footage and narration here to bring to life this memorable year.
