    Feeling Good About America: The 1976 Presidential Election By 1976, it seemed America was finally on the right track. The Vietnam War and the assassinations of several important political figures were behind us. Vice President Spiro Agnew's corruption was fading from the public's memory, and the crimes of Watergate forced Nixon to resign from the presidency. Americans were ready to be normal again. A new feeling was sweeping coast to coast as people pulled together to celebrate the nation's bicentennial, and to select a new president who could help close the book on an awful decade. FEELING GOOD ABOUT AMERICA: THE 1976 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION chronicles the race between incumbent Republican President Gerald Ford and Democratic candidate and Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter, who stepped onto the national stage touting his outsider status and promising, "I'll never lie to you." The documentary explores Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon, the anti-establishment sentiment surging through the country, Carter's primary strategy in a crowded field, and the challenge to Ford by Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination. Using a combination of archival clips and interviews, the film examines this close race and discusses how the 1976 Presidential election was the last time in which the country wasn't polarized in the manner it is today. The documentary features: historian and author Douglas Brinkley; political analyst Larry J. Sabato; journalist and political commentator Fred Barnes; Carter's National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski; and President Ford's son, Jack Ford; among many others. duration 55:10   STEREO TVPG

    Gordon Getty: There Will Be Music GORDON GETTY: THERE WILL BE MUSIC profiles a man born into extraordinary wealth who chose to concentrate largely on music rather than on the family business. Gordon Getty's father, J. Paul Getty, was at the time of his death in 1976, the richest man in the world. But as the progeny of his father's fourth marriage, Gordon also inherited a family history that included scandal and tragedy. However, Gordon has more than survived and he has earned, on his own, membership in the highest echelons of the worlds of the arts and ideas. He is the author of complex, groundbreaking economic theories, and is an influential philanthropist and patron of the arts. It is music, however, that is Getty's chief pursuit. His compositions reflect a rich imagination and mastery of technique, as well as his courage to go against the grain of modernism. Although he thinks that he would have become a composer no matter what, Gordon credits his wealth for giving him the unrestricted liberty to compose. Yet, he credits his passion for music for lifting the curse of his family's inherited wealth and for letting him avoid all the trappings of money. Ten years in the making, the documentary offers a glimpse into the life of this complex, creative, controversial octogenarian at home and around the globe (Napa, San Francisco, Mexico, Germany, Russia and Portugal), during an intensely productive period. GORDON GETTY: THERE WILL BE MUSIC delivers an intimate portrait of the composer and musician during the creation, rehearsals, recordings and performances, of two full-length operas, including Usher House, based on Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher, cantata, and numerous solo and chamber works. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
