1969 - What2Watch

Many people may think of summer as the lazy season, laid-back, balmy months of vacation, recreation and outdoor events. The summer of 1969, however, was eventful in the extreme. This new six-part weekly docudrama looks at those chaotic warm-weather weeks when the moon landing, the Woodstock musical festival, the birth of the gay rights movement in the Stonewall Uprising and FBI clashes with black activists competed with other big moments for headlines. The premiere is devoted to the lunar mission, with comments from the unsung women who helped make it possible.
