Following last year’s critically acclaimed The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us, NGC once again presents the defining documentary of a generation, this time exploring the meaning behind the milestones to determine if the ’90s was in fact the last great decade.
It was a decade of highs and lows. Bill Clinton swept into office on the promise of change; we all made new “Friends”; the LA Riots kept us glued to our TVs; Nirvana gave Generation X a voice but everyone danced the Macarena; and “The Real World” and Jerry Springer changed the television programming landscape. It was a time when technology accelerated us into our digital future, when the United States had won a Cold War yet faced a new enemy driven by fanaticism. A time when billionaires were created faster than ever before, and even the government had a surplus.
Through 120 exclusive interviews with the biggest names in pop culture and politics, National Geographic Channel’s new miniseries “The ’90s: The Last Great Decade?“ will explore an era of exuberance, marked by political change and booming technological advances. The six-hour cultural programming event will unveil a deeper perspective into the folds of major events in pop culture, politics, and the technology that changed us, presenting the decade’s most unpredictable and unforgettable moments like never before.
Don’t miss the three-night miniseries event The ’90s: The Last Great Decade? starting Sunday, July 6, at 9P!
