Description

Executive produced by multiple EMMY Award-winning producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman (HBO's John Adams and The Pacific), and EMMY Award-winning producer Mark Herzog (History's Gettysburg) of Herzog & Company (HCO), THE SIXTIES explores the most transformative decade of the modern era. Few decades have had the breadth of impact of THE SIXTIES. Focussing on the US but encompassing the world, this was a tumultuous ten-year period and, every step of the way, television helped frame and enable that change. It is through the lens of television that we will experience THE SIXTIES. This decade saw both the apex of liberal activism and the emergence of the conservative movement. It was the decade when America finally confronted and began to redress racial injustice through the efforts of some of the bravest citizens in its history. It was the decade when women started to question their traditional role in the home, workplace, and society. Sports became integrated and commercialised. Culturally, a radical difference emerged in the kind of music we listened to, the movies we attended, and the television we watched. In ten episodes with 2 extended episodes, THE SIXTIES explores and examines how and why this decade became a period of such consequence and, still today, remains an epoch of such fascination… all in a visceral, in-the-moment feel through the use of archival footage. The series unfolds chronologically, but is packaged topically into the following ten categories: The Cold War, Civil Rights, JFK Assassination / Warren Report, The British Invasion, Television, Vietnam, The Summer of Love, 1968, Social Change, and Space & Technology. By weaving together a variety of events and personalities that influenced and dominated the sixties, we sketch a portrait of this remarkable decade that is both entertaining and illuminating. THE SIXTIES does not just reexamine the familiar… it unearths the unknown.
