MUSEUM OF BROADCASTING'S 4TH ANNUAL TELEVISION FESTIVAL IN LOS ANGELES, THE: BARBRA STREISAND: THE TELEVISION WORK {A HAPPENING IN CENTRAL PARK}

Summary

An estimated 135,000 people jammed Central Park's Sheep Meadow for a free solo concert by Barbra Streisand in June, 1968. Six TV cameras and a 35 mm film camera mounted on a helicopter recorded the concert and the audience from every conceivable angle. Streisand progresses through a wide range of emotions and moods in her songs, which are as dissimilar as "The Nearness of You," "Second-Hand Rose," her trademark subdued version of "Happy Days Are Here Again," and -- despite the fact that it was summertime -- "Silent Night," which stopped the show.
