    Chicago, August 26-29, 1968.  Thousands of delegates arrive for the Democratic Convention to affirm Vice-President Hubert Humphrey as the party’s nominee for the presidential election.  Even more activists arrive to protest the Johnson administration, the war in Viet Nam, and the state of the USA, and to act out new possibilities for lifestyles, demonstrations, and political theater.  Chaos ensues, heavily covered by mainstream and alternative media.  Program six of 1968: Visions of Possibilities looks at this fateful week through two lenses, of "Yippie" and Medium Cool.
