today is the 45th anniversary of the Berkeley teach-in--an event that culminated weeks of similar campus actions that marked the start of the mass movement against the Vietnam war. And it was 35 years ago that the war finally ended. Meanwhile, who did what and how they remember it is still a major cultural and political issue. On tonight's broadcast we'll listen to excerpts from speeches at the Berkeley teach in by movement leaders--Bob Parris Moses, Mario Savio, Paul Potter, Staughton Lynd--interwoven with songs by the protest troubadours of that time, especially Phil Ochs, who sang then and there.
