Through the Decades June 12
On June 12, Bill Kurtis of Through the Decades turns the lens of time back to 1978, when New York serial killer David Berkowitz also known as Son of Sam awaited his fate in a courtroom. Kerry Sayers remembers the day Indiana Jones first appeared in the film Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, and Ellee Pai Hong recalls President Reagan's impactful and sharp-tongued tear down this wall speech of 1987. Kerry explores the history behind the bicycle on the day it was taken for a ride for the very first time in 1817, and Bill reflects on a still mysterious escape from Alcatraz on the day three men made a break for it in 1962. Ellee looks back at the first marriage ceremony held outdoors at the White House in 1971 between Tricia Nixon and Edward Cox, and Kerry closes with a profile of the talented Gregory Peck on the day the world lost him.
