Description: 

Independent Lens’ Best of Enemies is a documentary about the  legendary debates between two great public intellectuals, Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley.  Their program came to define a new era of public discourse in the media demarcating the moment that TV’s political ambition shifted from narrative to spectacle.  In the summer of 1968, ABC News aired a series of ten nationally televised debates during the presidential conventions.  Viewing each other’s political ideologies as dangerous – even catastrophic – for America, they slugged out policy, personal insult and revisionist histories to stake out opposing political positions that continue to resonate today.
