1969 (ABC) -- six part docuseries -- premieres 4/23/19

New docu-series "1969" weaves together rarely told stories of the moon landing, Manson murders, Chappaquiddick scandal and Woodstock with that of Nixon's first year in office, John Lennon's Bed-Ins for Peace, FBI shootouts with black activists and the Stonewall Uprising. The six-part series features gripping first-hand accounts of how these events came together at the same dizzying, chaotic time. "1969" premieres Tuesday, April 23 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. The six-part docu-series' original score by multiplatinum producer and GRAMMY(R)-nominated artist, producer and songwriter Salaam Remi pays tribute to the revolutionary sounds of a year that reshaped rock.


"Moon Shot" - In July 1969 when Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins traveled to the moon and planted the American flag on the lunar surface, it brought the nation and the world together. Though the billions spent on the moon shot were controversial, especially among civil rights leaders, it would make America the world leader in technology.

Featured in the episode are interviews with Margaret Hamilton, a pioneering female software engineer whose coding made the moon landing possible; "Hidden Figures" Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden; astronaut Michael Collins who was among the three who strapped themselves to an explosive rocket and hurtled into the unknown; and Charlie Duke and Gerry Griffin, who provided the astronauts a crucial lifeline to Mission Control as they dared to attempt the impossible. Young astronauts and engineers of today look back at why what they did was so incredible - and what we owe them. Docu-series "1969" premieres TUESDAY, APRIL 23 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network and will be available streaming and on demand.

The series director and executive producer of "1969" is Jeanmarie Condon for Lincoln Square Productions.

This was also the year I was born. So far, ABC hasn't reached out to me.
