    Executive produced by multiple EMMY Award-winning producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman (HBO's John Adams and The Pacific), and EMMY Award-winning producer Mark Herzog (History's Gettysburg) of Herzog & Company (HCO), THE SIXTIES explores the most transformative decade of the modern era.

    Few decades have had the breadth of impact of THE SIXTIES. Focussing on the US but encompassing the world, this was a tumultuous ten-year period and, every step of the way, television helped frame and enable that change. It is through the lens of television that we will experience THE SIXTIES.

    This decade saw both the apex of liberal activism and the emergence of the conservative movement. It was the decade when America finally confronted and began to redress racial injustice through the efforts of some of the bravest citizens in its history. It was the decade when women started to question their traditional role in the home, workplace, and society. Sports became integrated and commercialised. Culturally, a radical difference emerged in the kind of music we listened to, the movies we attended, and the television we watched.

    In ten episodes with 2 extended episodes, THE SIXTIES explores and examines how and why this decade became a period of such consequence and, still today, remains an epoch of such fascination… all in a visceral, in-the-moment feel through the use of archival footage. The series unfolds chronologically, but is packaged topically into the following ten categories: The Cold War, Civil Rights, JFK Assassination / Warren Report, The British Invasion, Television, Vietnam, The Summer of Love, 1968, Social Change, and Space & Technology. By weaving together a variety of events and personalities that influenced and dominated the sixties, we sketch a portrait of this remarkable decade that is both entertaining and illuminating.


      Please note:

      These discs are (PAL) format, and will work on Australian & European DVD players. USA/Canada customers will need a multi-region enabled player.

      How much is delivery?

      Delivery across New Zealand and Australia is free on all orders.

      Products are usually despatched separately even if you have ordered them together. If you would like to have items sent to separate addresses please complete a separate order for each address.


      How are orders despatched?

      We ship all items from dvd suppliers in three countries from which we source and they ship out your order directly to you; they are located in New Zealand, Australia & UK.

      We ship out orders from suppliers located closest to your location (depending on where the item is in stock) to ensure quick and safe delivery. We use suppliers from NZ, Australia & UK depending on availability of the item to ensure you receive your item as quickly as possible.


      This will be dependent on the size and value of the parcel. Deliveries are shipped by Airmail to worldwide destinations from our fulfilment centres in New Zealand, Australia, US & UK depending on which centre holds the stock and which is closer for quicker delivery to you. Sometimes we will use our suppliers and distributor labels to ship the item direct to you in order to reduce delivery times.


      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.



      All non-delivered items will be replaced or refunded in full as our deliveries are insured against loss/damage.
