Description
Episode Description
In its upcoming bi-monthly series Regional Report, National Educational Television focuses on The Republicans. Not since the days before President Johnsons crushing victory of Barry Goldwater 16 months ago has the outlook of the GOP been so bright. Because of the Administrations war policy in Vietnam and the growing possibility of increased inflation and a restoration of some tax cuts, Republicans are now predicting sweeping gains in Congressional seats in the November elections. Regional editors at NET affiliated stations across the country talk with ranking Republicans to find out what has happened to the GOP since its overwhelming defeat in 1964. They also examine how the Partys philosophy, attitudes, and tactics have changed and examine how it stands as another November election approaches. A highlight of The Republicans is former Vice-President Richard Nixon discussing President Johnsons Vietnam War policies and how they are expected to help Republicans pick up blocks of Congressional seats. From key cities in NETs nationwide network regional editors give the local slant on GOP plans. Included among these are reports from California where Ronald Reagan is a leading candidate in the Republican gubernatorial primary and from Texas where GOP strategy is being mapped to embarrass President Johnson in his home state by capturing Congressional seats now held by Democrats. There are also reports from the South where Republicans are concentrating on gaining Negro votes and from the Midwest were Republicans are intensifying their efforts. The Northeast segment includes a discussion of Mayor Lindsays victory in New York City and the prospects of New Yorks Governor Rockefeller. A national picture of the direction the Republican Party is following is presented from Washington where GOP National Chairman Ray Bliss is interviewed. REGIONAL REPORT #9: THE REPUBLICANS: a 1966 National Educational Television production. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
