One Bright Shining Moment - The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern (Trailer)
When presidential candidate George McGovern took on incumbent Richard Nixon in 1972, no one really expected him to win – and he didn't. But in his bold, grassroots, seat-of-the-pants campaign, which energized young and progressive Americans to a degree never before seen, we find the genesis of today's powerful and sophisticated progressive movement. Using a wealth of amazing archival materials, interviews with provocative figures including historian Howard Zinn, and extensive interviews with McGovern himself, this “tremendously thought-provoking tribute to the one man who could have dramatically and permanently altered America's political landscape for the better [is] essential viewing.” (CBS Radio)
