Documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney is back – yet again. The Peabody and Oscar Award-winner is here to share the life and work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. That documentary is titled Gonzo. Thompson was born 78 years ago this weekend.
Then – a bonus feature from Gibney. Magic Trip features archival footage shot in 1964 by Ken Kesey and "The Merry Band of Pranksters" as they traveled by psychedelic bus from the West coast to the World's Fair in New York City. They documented their LSD-fueled trip to the "World of Tomorrow" with 16mm film, but never quite finished editing the 100 hours of footage. [Broadcast Date: July 17, 2015]
