50 Years of Beauty In The Streets (May '68 Revisited)

It’s 50 years on from 1968 - a year that saw demonstrations and revolutions around the world, the beginnings of anti-war and civil rights movements in the US and the shocking assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. It also saw the start of the Nixon Administration, a successful orbit of the moon and the dawn of the television age that brought the world into living rooms.
Australian ABC's Radio National has been exploring what it was about 1968 and how it changed the way we think about culture, identity and politics today
