Over the Edge – Beatniks Part I

A collaged survey of the original Beat scene on both the East and West Coast. (Did you know the term refers to  “beaten down” and has nothing to do with snapping fingers?) Several extended news features on this new, emerging social and cultural phenomenon of values rejection, Kerouac and his poetry are emphasized, songs about the Beat Generation, and jazz, including “The Clown” by Gene Shephard and Charlie Mingus.
