Woodstock Coverage, 45 Years Ago

CBS wraps it up, introduced by Walter Cronkite.  News and then analysis (by John Laurence, who was an ace Vietnam war reporter).  And check out the somewhat sexually suggestive diet commercial.  Below that, ABC's coverage, also quite positive on "polite" kids and lack of "rioting."  Plus:  The greatest band cut out of the Woodstock film--of course, it's The Band.  Now see what we missed.

Wow, some early awareness of environmental issues, very surprising. Good to see adults in media not hyping danger and conflict, so different from what I imagine today's coverage would be.
Thanks for finding these videos.
