2.TVTV Four More Years
Top Value Television | 60 min | 1972
TVTV was formed in 1972 by Michael Shamberg, Megan Williams, Tom Weinberg, and Allen Rucker and enlisted the support of media collectives including Raindance, Ant Farm, and the Videofreex to provide alternative coverage of the 1972 Presidential nominating conventions. Top Value Television is TVTV's inside view of the 1972 Republican National Convention made broadcast history. While network cameras focused on the orchestrated renomination of Richard Nixon, TVTV's rag-tag army of guerrilla television activists turned their cameras on to the cocktail parties, anti-war demonstrations, hype and hoopla that accompanied the show.
