Part 1: Hollywood. 1969. Hippies and revolutionaries mingle with rock gods and movie stars. The dream is over, but the party won't end. Gangsters, drug dealers, spooks and cult leaders haunt the scene. As the summer rolls on, Reagan unleashes his dogs on the counterculture, LAPD bulls run wild, paranoia reaches fever pitch, secret networks plot in the shadows, and the Family mounts an apocalyptic assault on Cielo Drive.
Tonight, we begin the end of Season of the Witch with a look at the dark networks encircling the LA scene of the late-60s, and go deep on one of the CIA's most controversial programs and the sickos who ran it.
