HERE COME THE VIDEO FREEX – Jon Nealon & Jenny Raskin
Mary Curtis Ratcliff, one of the Videofreex pioneer activists Q & A
HERE COME THE VIDEOFREEX starts in 1969. America is undergoing cultural and political revolutions, but you’d never know it by watching TV. Young CBS executive Don West creates a secret project to tell the stories of the counterculture ignored by TV news. He hires a group of young people who have embraced a brand new medium – video. They named themselves the Videofreex and on CBS’s dime, they traveled the country in an RV taping footage the networks could never get.
