    I need to review the year of 1968 for my history class by Monday and I'm looking for videos on the year.

    I was looking for some one iTunes and the closest thing I found was The Summer of Love:1967 which was okay, but didn't have many big events.

    search for some ads aired in 1968 on youtube. it's amazing to see the difference in culture in ads.

    Take the key events and search those on youtube, google video, etc.

    Is this world history or U.S. History. If U.S. history, you'll obviously want to cover the anti-war movement, MLK and RFK assassinations. If it's world history, you'll want to cover the events in Vietnam (Tet offensive, Ly Lai massacre, etc), the May of 68 events in France, the Tlatelolco massacre in México D.F., etc, etc.

    This is European history, which basically translates to World History. Thanks for the tips.

    This will help for the French May uprisings. It'll help more if you understand French. Unfortunately, most of my understanding of the May 68 events comes from my Film History courses.
