Recently, I watched a documentary on Ethel Kennedy and in it she shared her life as a politician’s wife, wife of a President, and as a mother. I found her interview to be riveting as it highlighted the efforts of her husband to bring social justice to the forefront as well as the legacy they wish for their children to carry forth into the world. Inspirational.
Impressive, right? I heard about it, but still haven’t seen it. A family devoted to public service and afflicted with tragedy. It was probably a stroke of genius on Rory’s part to make the film — the candor and affection directed toward the youngest can be very revealing. Thanks, Grace – I’ll make sure I watch it.
Priceless interview Vickie. I suppose it was NOT shown on all TV stations as part of MLK Day. The standard of the discussion is probably too high for today’s stations 🙁
I was struck by the level of discourse as well, but I think if you are careful and weed out infotainment and news light from the one zillion providers of content now, you can find similar discussions.
Hard Talk on BBC is similar but intelligent debate is rare, otherwise! And therefore much appreciated when it is unearthed.
I’ll have to try it! Some of the BBC I have access to, and some broadcasts I don’t…
We have BBC TV 24 hours via our cable TV but trying to watch it online is hit and miss.
