An APM documentary about a presidential campaign that was marked by surprising turns, tragic violence and a momentous outcome. The 1968 presidential campaign was shaped by an unpopular war and by fractious race relations. Donald Trump's advisors say he's looking to Richard Nixon's 1968 speeches for insights. The "Campaign '68" documentary was produced in 2008 by Stephen Smith and Kate Ellis. Now called APM Reports and a podcast called Educate.
