The Paley Center for Media

1968 / Television


As part of the Carnegie Hall citywide festival The ‘60s: The Years That Changed America, the Paley Center is presenting screenings of 1968 television programs from our archives—including an historic special report from Vietnam by Walter Cronkite and an episode of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour with Pete Seeger—that will look at how the medium reported the news and how it adapted to the changing national mood. Among the other programs to be screened are James Brown: Live in Boston, the complete concert by James Brown and his band that was broadcast on April 5, 1968—the day after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.; a segment on pianist Glenn Gould from the magazine-program Public Broadcasting Laboratory; episodes of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In and Get Smart; and the series premiere of 60 Minutes.
