Episode Summary

1968 With Tom Brokaw
In 1968,Tom Brokaw will draw upon his personal experiences as a journalist whose own life is inextricably bound to the 60's. He'll travel to iconic destinations (the scenes of defining moments or events) not simply to retell history, but to engage in what he calls, "virtual reunions" - pairing together unlikely and provocative voices from both the past and present: A one-time student anti-war leader from the 60's might hash out Iraq with a present day student about to join the military...or the publisher of the first "Whole Earth Catalog" (a 'how-to' for the "future of humankind" published in '68) sits down with Tom and Stephen Jobs - who recently called the catalog the spiritual forerunner of the internet.moreless
