Hu-Listic: From the Archives

August 26th, 2009 by Jocelyn Matsuo Asst Video Editor

Each week, Hulu Video Editor Jocelyn Matsuo shares her picks of the week for her column, “Hu-listic.”

Sometimes, I get tired of the fluff. Don’t get me wrong, I am anxiously awaiting the next season of The Biggest Loser, which premieres on NBC September 15. But when the old noggin wants some exercise instead of relief, NBC News Time Capsule is a good solution.

These news archives give you some perspective on historical events, showing you how the news was covered at the times you read about in history class, or lived through and can’t remember. Don’t be thrown off by my use of “perspective” and “historical” in the previous sentence. These are vintage, not old-hat.

I personally recommend this middle-America look at drugs and the hippie movement of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district in the Summer of 1967.
