Storyline

If the 1960s represented peace, love, and the "We Generation", then the 1970s came to represent the pleasure seeking excesses of the "Me Generation." The 1970s were a decade when cocaine was king, a President fell in disgrace, homegrown terrorist groups prowled the streets and all-night parties raged in Studio 54 - all while neighborhoods burned and the Son of Sam hunted. And yet it was a time of renewed liberties, and huge technological leaps when two kids named Steve built a machine in their Silicon Valley garage that changed the world. Using rare footage and a period soundtrack, this special deconstructs the 1970s, from Watergate to Studio 54. It evokes nostalgia and challenges it, exploring the dark side of the decade's cult leaders, sexual liberation and disco scene. Written by History Channel
