This engrossing series presents seminal events in a radical new way: not looking back with hindsight, but as they were covered by national and local news broadcasts at the time. This footage, much of which has not been seen for decades, gives an intimacy and immediacy to stories we thought we knew. Six new episodes cover events from the 1960s and 1970s, including the assassination of Malcom X, the Tet Offensive, the Apollo 13 mission and the Tornado Super Outbreak of 1974. We also rediscover the Impeachment of Bill Clinton from 1994 and the DC Sniper attacks from October 2002.
