A Generation in Revolt Part 1: Two Heroes *RERUN
We turn our lens to the stormy 1960s. In this decade of youth uprisings, Che Guevara and Mao Zedong are two revolutionary heroes who urge them on. In 1967, the first live global satellite broadcast sends images of a newborn baby in Japan, and the filming of Romeo and Juliet in Italy, around the world. TV is also bringing the horror of the Vietnam War into people's living rooms on a daily basis, igniting antiwar protests worldwide. Che Guevara was a major inspiration for the leader of Germany's huge antiwar movement, a young Rudi Dutschke.
