Summary
"[This program] looks back to the dawn and development of the modern environmental movement -- from its post-war rustlings in the 1950s and the 1962 publication of Rachel Carson's incendiary bestseller 'Silent Spring' to the first wildly successful 1970 Earth Day celebration and the subsequent firestorm of political action." -- Container
