"1976 THE BIG SWINDLES" produced by David Burket and Susan Richman. A somewhat sardonic look back at the news events of the bicentennial year 1976, and examination of what has happened in relation to these events, since. Topics include: Congressional sex scandals, Earl Butz, ERA and abortion legislation, the Moonies, the swine flu epidemic, and of course, the Buy-centennial. (Brief mentions of China, G.E. Nuclear employee resignations, homosexual rulings, etc.) The Moonies segment was heavily excerpted from BC2132. This program contains excerpts from many other Pacifica programs.
