Next week, GPB celebrates the 50th anniversary of Woodstock with two new documentaries that take an in-depth look at the festival. Take a look below at what we've got coming up.


POV: The Distant Barking of Dogs - Monday, August 5 at 10 PM

Follow the life of 10-year-old Oleg and witness the gradual erosion of his innocence beneath the pressures of the ongoing war in Eastern Ukraine.


Woodstock 50 Years Later - Tuesday, August 6 at 8 PM
Woodstock's mix of music, culture, and idealism resonates across the years. It gave youth a voice. It changed the music business and it energized activists. From stadium shows to the #MeToomovement, it still echoes 50 years later. This program is built around the experts and memorabilia at the Bethel Woods Museum for the Arts, on the site of the festival. 
American Experience - Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation - Tuesday, August 6 at 9 PM
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the concert that became a touchstone for a generation. This new film brings the three-day concert to life through the voices of those who were present at what became the defining moment of the counterculture revolution.
