AMERICAN EXPERIENCE | Earth Days | PBS

Duration: 00:31
Program: Earth Days: American Experience #2205
Broadcast Date: Apr. 29, 2010

Witness the seeds of a revolution in EARTH DAYS, hailed as "spectacular" (Hollywood Reporter), "fascinating" (Bloomberg News) and "a beautifully composed tribute to visionary thinking and political ingenuity" (New York Times). Earth Days traces the development of the modern environmental movement from its post-war rumblings in the 1950s to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action to reveal an engaging history of the revolutionary achievements-—and missed opportunities-—of groundbreaking eco-activism.
