Stevie Nicks – Live at Red Rocks (1987)

Set against the raw majesty of Colorados Red Rocks Amphitheatre, this post-Fleetwood Mac concert by Stevie Nicks captures this sensual, poetic artist in breathtaking surroundings. Backed by her sizable band, Nicks’ dusky vocals showcase beautifully on all of the Live at Red Rocks segments. Special guests include Mick Fleetwood and Peter Frampton

55 Days: The Fall of Saigon (2010)

I remember my mom crying when we were watching the helicopters take the last of the diplomats out of the embassy. Under the terms of the accords, all American combat troops were withdrawn by 29 March 1973. Limited fighting continued, before North Vietnam captured the province of Phuoc Long in December 1974 and started a full-scale offensive, culminating in the Fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975.

Gunsmoke (1955-75)

Gunsmoke had a twenty year TV run with William Conrad as the sheriff of dodge city. The early episodes are perhaps more somber, serious and gritty than the ones that came after. It seems that there was a brief trend in television in the late 50’s and early 60’s to make some television with really serious topics. It almost seems out of place and Gunsmoke remains relevant 50 years later.
