I was channel surfing tonight and came across this eight part documentary, that i was previously unaware existed. I was pretty young during this time (from 7 to 17) - I forgot how truly complicated, and in some ways, how really FU, and in some ways, positive the 1970's were. Very good review of the decade. Originally aired last year. Highly recommended viewing.
