Through the Decades August 13
On August 13, Bill Kurtis of Through the Decades turns the lens of time back to 1973, when Americans encountered the strange case of Kathy Crampton a religious cult member whose abduction by a deprogrammer was captured on television. Kerry Sayers recalls the day in 1992 that Woody Allen sued Mia Farrow for custody of three of her children bringing sexual abuse allegations against Allen to the forefront and epitomizing the celebrity couple's tumultuous relationship. Kerry revisits 1935 for the inaugural Transcontinental Roller Derby, and Bill remembers the day in 1961 that construction began on the Berlin Wall dividing the city's communist East from its democratic West as Cold War tensions boiled over. Ellee Pai Hong returns to 1994 for the sequel to the 1969 Woodstock music festival, reincarnating the peace-and-love fest that defined a generation. To close, Kerry profiles radio and television personality Danny Bonaduce, who got his start on the hit 1970's sitcom The Partridge Family.
