What other works would you recommend? We have this series but I'm
curious as to other alternatives.

Damn! I knew I shouldn't have shot my mouth off (again)... I know of no
other series-type coverage of the 60's or any one shot wonderful
overview. One could cludge together a decent overview, I think, by
grouping together:
* Berkeley in the 60's (available from FACETS and others)
* Chicago 1968 (American Experience) (available from FACETS and others)
* Selected parts from Vietnam: a Television History (available from
PBS et al)
* Letter to the Next Generation (New Day Films)
* Selected parts from Eyes on the Prize II
* History of Rock and Roll (the following installments: Britain
Invades, America Fights Back; Plugging In;
My Generation)
* Unpinned. (1965-1970). (The Century: America's Time; 11.) (Films for
the Humanities & Sciences)
* Excerpts from Mike Wadleigh's Woodstock (available from FACETS and
others)
or, alternatively, excerpts from D.A. Pennebaker's Monterey Pop
* Excerpts from Gimme Shelter (available from FACETS and others)
There's a series I rather like called The Rebels (Filmwest Associates) that
has an installment on the 60's youth rebellion (Turn on the Revolution)

I'd also throw in the following features:

Blow-up
Easy Rider
Medium Cool

..all groovy, man!
