The Seventies: The Complete Series DVD


Produced by Emmyaward winning producers Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog, The Seventies is the second series in the acclaimed documentary strand chronicling American society and popular culture in the later twentieth century. In many ways, the 1970s were as dramatic as the 1960s. America lost its first war and endured two energy crises, and a President resigned after an unprecedented political scandal. Television tackled once-taboo subjects, while in a decade of cultural diversity, popular music enjoyed a multi-genre explosion. There was a revolution in sexual mores and gender roles; serial killings and other violent crime kept the nation on edge, and bombing, hijacking and hostage-taking introduced the world to the modern face of terrorism. This epic series uses rare archival footage and interviews with renowned journalists, historians, musicians and television artists to paint a vivid and compelling portrait of a decade of lasting consequence. The United States v. Nixon A third rate burglary leads to the only presidential resignation in American history. Television Gets Real With increasingly sophisticated programming, television finds a new maturity. Peace with Honor The country begins to come to terms with the impact of the war in Vietnam. Terrorism: At Home and Abroad The birth and evolution of terrorism as we know it today. What's Goin' On Pop music explodes into new genres, as established artists find new creative voice. The State of the Union is Not Good America seems to go from bad to worse as the country careens from crisis to crisis. Battle of the Sexes America undergoes a seismic shift in sexual mores, customs and gender roles. Crimes and Cults An unprecedented wave of violent crime grips America.
