About this course:
Over more than half a century as a foreign correspondent for the Express and the Times of London, Ivor Davis covered major events in North America. In an interview with Los Angeles Times lifestyle and travel writer Sharon Boorstin, Mr. Davis shares stories from his time on the front lines. Join them as they go back to 1964, when he was the only British journalist to cover the Beatles' first American tour from start to finish, giving him unparalleled access to John, Paul, George, and Ringo for 34 days on the road. Then on to 1968, when Mr. Davis covered the California Democratic Primary and was in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel when Robert Kennedy was shot. And finally from 1969 to 1971, when Mr. Davis covered the Manson murders and subsequent trial. Time permitting, other news events will be discussed from this magical and tumultuous decade.
