A lot of good stuff in this: the "America .. greatest purveyor of violence" speech, how he was despised by all major media and much of the (even the African-American) public after that speech, how his next sermon after Memphis was to be "Is America Going to Hell?", reasons for assassination, contrast with Obama's war policy, and more. Here are the official specs from the PBS website:

This was quite good.. thanks for uploading this here. I would have missed it otherwise.
Even better is Dr. King's incredible speech that this program is about. I highly recommend everyone listen to MLK's speech in its entirety and read the transcript of the speech. It is really a brilliant, searing, prophetic speech that is just as relevant today as it was when he gave it on April 4, 1967. Here are the links:
