    Here is a CBS special that aired in late 1979, called "American Dream, American Nightmare," narrated by Harry Reasoner. An in-depth look at the 1970s in America, with focus on Watergate, Nixon, Vietnam, Womens Lib, the energy crisis, etc. Notice that almost all of the footage is on film, not videotape....a sign of the times! For those of you who, like myself, lived through this, it's a great nostalgic look back at a turbulent decade. For those of you who weren't around yet, this is a great visual history lesson. This is part 1.
