THERE ARE MOMENTS THAT JUST CHANGE EVERYTHING
For music fans, some moments were so huge that they’re still relevant decades later. The Beatles on Sullivan. Dylan going electric. And of course, there was Woodstock. Even now — maybe especially now — Woodstock still has meaning. Its mix of music, culture, and idealism resonates across the years. It gave youth a voice. It changed the music business and it energized activists. From stadium shows to the #MeToomovement, it still echoes 50 years later.
The program is built around the experts and memorabilia at the Bethel Woods Museum for the Arts, on the site of the festival. We examine three aspects of this world-changing event:
- A festival is born: It took an incredible combination of vision, tenacity – and luck – to pull it off. How did such an unprecedented event come to be, especially after the original location pulled the plug with just four weeks to go?
- The bands: Woodstock was a defining moment for artists like Carlos Santana and Jimi Hendrix; but there were A LOT more bands on the bill. Dig into the famous, the forgotten (Quill, anyone?) and the weird (yes, ShaNaNaplayed Woodstock).
- The legacy: From technological advances that enabled future mega-shows, to the validation of Youth Culture to the social advocacy, Woodstock helped set changes in motion that are still rippling five decades later.
I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
