THE BILL OF RIGHTS IN ACTION : FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

No evidence of national broadcast




The First Amendment to the Constitution says that Congress shall make no law abridging freedom of the press. But does this mean that a reporter can refuse to cooperate in a criminal investigation in order to protect the name of his source for a new story? Unlike other citizens, can he plead a special privilege not to answer questions before a Grand Jury? This film, built around a case involving these issues, leaves the ultimate answer up to the viewer

BERKELEY IN THE SIXTIES

PBS

117 min.

Mark Kitchell's Oscar nominated epic, vividly tracing the Free Speech Movement to the last stand over People's Park in Berkeley, California. It was named Best Documentary of 1990 by the National Society of Film Critics (PBS-POV)

Six years in the making and with a cast of thousands, Berkeley in the Sixties recaptures the exhilaration and turmoil of the unprecedented student protests that shaped a generation and changed the course of America. It is considered by many the best filmic treatment of the 1960s yet made.
This Academy Award-nominated documentary interweaves the memories of 15 former student leaders, who grapple with the meaning of their actions. Their recollections are interwoven with footage culled from thousands of historical clips and hundreds of interviews. Ronald Reagan, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mario Savio, Huey Newton, Allen Ginsburg, and the music of Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and the Grateful Dead all bring that tumultuous decade back to life.
Its reflective and insightful analysis of the era - from the HUAC hearings and civil rights sit-ins at the beginning of the decade through the Free Speech Movement, the anti-war protests, the growth of the counter-culture, the founding of the Black Panther Party and the stirrings of the Women's Movement - confronts every viewer with the questions the 1960s raised, which remain largely unanswered.(http://www.newsreel.org/films/berkeley.htm)
