Episode 64: An American Family (1973)

This week join Steve, Andrew, and Jonathan as they discuss the PBS 1973 series An American Family. Was it an experimental documentary? Was it the first iteration of what we now understand as “reality TV”? These questions and many others are discussed as we think through how affected one becomes when “living” in front of a camera.

Then be sure to stop back two weeks from now on August 10th, 2017 to listen to our next full length episode. You can leave a comment on this page and can always reach us via email at: feedback@tvhistorypod.com
