In the late 1960s, the world faced a rebellion from its youth. The US baby boomers' protests against the Vietnam War spread to other countries including Japan. The reform movement Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia spurred demand for civil rights in communist countries. Television helped to unite these youth-lead social movements by broadcasting protesters fighting for freedom. Two charismatic revolutionary leaders also stimulated the youth rebellion: Cuba's Ernesto "Che" Guevara and China's Mao Zedong. This episode remembers the age when a storm of saying "NO" swept the world.
