New docu-series 1969 weaves together rarely told stories of the moon landing, Manson murders, Chappaquiddick scandal and Woodstock with that of Nixon’s first year in office, John Lennon’s Bed-Ins for Peace, FBI shootouts with black activists and the Stonewall Uprising. The six-part series features gripping first-hand accounts of how these events came together at the same dizzying, chaotic time. “1969” premieres Tuesday, April 23 (10:00–11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. The six-part docu-series’ original score by multiplatinum producer and GRAMMY®-nominated artist, producer and songwriter Salaam Remi pays tribute to the revolutionary sounds of a year that reshaped rock.
Episode 2 is titled “Manson Girls” Here is the synopsis: “Two young women, while still in their teens, fell in love with Charles Manson and became part of his group of devoted followers. Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme and Dianne Lake describe in revelatory detail the journeys that led each of them to join the so-called “Manson Family.” The two former Manson Family members give an inside view of what life with Charles was like; how the counter culture of the ‘60s that extolled sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll shaped their view of the world; and the convictions that moved the group toward a violent drug-fueled murder spree that left seven dead, including actress Sharon Tate, who was more than eight months pregnant at the time and living in the home she shared with her, husband, Roman Polanski.”
Don’t miss 1969 “Manson Girls” airing Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 10/9c on ABC.
