    Produced by Emmy award-winning Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog, The Seventies is the second series in the acclaimed documentary strand chronicling American society and popular culture in the later twentieth century.

    In many ways, the 1970s were as dramatic as the 1960s. America lost its first war and endured two energy crises and a president resigned after an unprecedented political scandal. Television tackled once-taboo subjects, while in a decade of cultural diversity, popular music enjoyed a multi-genre explosion. There was a revolution in sexual mores and gender roles; serial killings and other violent crime kept the nation on edge, and bombing, hijacking and hostage-taking introduced the world to the modern face of terrorism.

    This epic series uses rare archival footage and interviews with renowned journalists, historians, musicians and television cast and crew to paint a vivid and compelling portrait of a decade of lasting consequence.

    United States v. Nixon
    A "third rate burglary" leads to the only presidential resignation in American history.

    Television Gets Real
    With increasingly sophisticated programming, television finds a new maturity.

    "Peace with Honor"
    The country begins to come to terms with the impact of the war in Vietnam.

    Terrorism at Home and Abroad
    The birth and evolution of terrorism as we know it today.

    What's Going On
    Pop music explodes into new genres, as established artists find a new creative voice.

    "The State of the Union is Not Good"
    America seems to go from bad to worse as the country careens from crisis to crisis.

    Battle of the Sexes
    America undergoes a seismic shift in sexual mores, customs and gender roles.

    Crimes and Cults
    An unprecedented wave of violent crime grips America.

      WHY DO SOME ITEMS INCUR BACKORDER AND DELAYS IN DELIVERY?
      Whilst we always aim to keep items in stock so we can ship your order immediately, unfortunately this is not always possible for a number of reasons:
      1. Our aim is to offer you a wide range of dvd & blu ray titles and some of these are fast sellers which can quickly run out of stock and therefore we need to source these to order.
      2. Sometimes we are reliant on labels and distributors and we have no control over delays incurred by our third party suppliers.
