Robert Kennedy and His Times, based on the biography by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, aired in 1985 as a television miniseries and is now available as a two-cassette release. This engaging drama paints a vivid portrait of Robert Kennedy (Brad Davis) as a private man and a public servant from 1946, when he worked on his brother Jack's Congressional campaign, until 1968, when at age 42 he was assassinated in Los Angeles after winning the California Presidential primary. His controversial life is set in the context of the political tensions of the late 1950s and the turbulence of the 1960s when competing cultural and social issues compelled America to deal with new challenges.
