"The clouds away, there are big bird Oscar the Grouch, come at the frog, the characters as Sesame Street have been the childhood friends of millions since they burst onto our screens in 1969. It was a product of the civil rights movement in the U.S. designed with education specialists to help teach America's inner city children. Well, a new documentary street gang, how we got to Sesame Street tells the origin story of the program and just how revolutionary its approach was. Monocles Robert bound heard from the documentary's director Maryland agrelo for this week's edition of monocle on culture, and rob began by asking Marilyn what kind of story she wants to tell about the show. When I was conceiving of this film and talking about it with the other filmmakers involved, I wanted to make something that would go beyond just showing clips of classic Sesame Street episodes because you can find those on YouTube. I wanted to tell the story of the people behind it and tell a story that was really about adults for adults. And in particular, I wanted to tell the story of John stone, who no one knows this guy. I mean, when I've talked to people throughout the course of making this movie and I've said I'm making a documentary about Sesame Street and variably people have said, oh yeah, Jim Henson at Jim Henson's show, but it's not. It's this wonderful genius named John stone and John, by the way, is the one who sat in front of the TV one day and saw public service announcement about send your kids to the ghetto and that is what inspired him to make Sesame Street look like a street in Harlem. He wanted to reach a very specific audience. Black and brown kids in the inner cities who were not getting the same opportunities as white kids in the suburbs. Yeah, and it was an amazing thing. So it was no fluke that this thing was really hit kids between the eyes and changed a lot we could say millions of lives for the better, at least in terms of getting kids to learn to spell learn to count them to make senses, learn to maybe even get on with each other and be able to communicate with adults and stuff. But there were educational psychologists. There were kind of school boards as well as the more commercial kind of television executive class. All brainstorming this show before it went on air. So it's no fluke at all. And you portray that fascinatingly in the film. You've got such great archive in there. But tell us about the sort of genesis of it, perhaps. And the production company that was set up in order to produce the show. So the first thing I want to say is that Sesame Street was really born of the civil rights movement in this country. In the 60s, you had the Vietnam War, you had the civil rights movement. There was protest society was in turmoil and from this, this group of activists who were also TV writers educators performers, musicians, animators, banded together to do a very bold act of revolution, really. They wanted to change children's television. Prior to Sesame Street, largely what was available to kids was shows that were aimed at selling products selling toys, candy, breakfast cereals, these clowns would come on and say to the kids, tell your mom and dad to buy you this. That was the whole purpose of the show. And they were all set in circus tents or fairy castles. And Sesame Street bursts onto the scene in 1969. It's set on a street covered in litter fashioned after a brownstone in Harlem, and there are black people, white people, Hispanic people, monsters, Muppets. Don't forget those guys. It was such a breath of fresh air. I mean, everyone was just stunned by this. And by the way, most of the audience had never seen a brownstone or an urban setting like this. It was quite bold and quite daring of them to take this chance. They took so many chances. It was so experimental. This is the story I wanted to tell. Yeah, and it was a political show, as you said, the kind of kick-off was the civil rights movement and as you said, the backdrop was America's presence in Vietnam and all of that. And so it was a quite boldly political show in its political ambitions for its ability to teach children and to teach non white children, a different sort of TV show, but it kind of wore its heart subtly, but it nonetheless kind of wore its heart on its sleeve as a production, right? Oh my God, absolutely. All of these very important messages about social justice and all of this was coded with exceptional comedy exceptional messages of love. I mean, the group that was gathered for this were at the top of their field, we had comedy writers on Sesame Street that came from the worlds of late night television, comedy for adults, the messages they were writing in these segments for the Muppets were filled with social satire and political commentary, really, but written in a way that you could take that message or you could also just look at Muppets having a good time. It was written on two levels for adults and for kids and that was the genius of Sesame Street. Baron Leonard grillo is speaking to Robert bell now. That's all we have time for today's program.

"People call up during this portion. And they wanna talk. So what the heck. Let's let's take Let me make sure that. I don't bring somebody who already had on. You guys are throwing me off a little here. Okay yep so two or five and three four seven it looks like our new people so two oh five Please take your name or your from welcome to the show. My name is steven calling from alabama and I have covered points. Wanna make Asking questions also but The whole thing cm punk. I get the thing with seen. He's the guy. And i'm not a big fan of fan. So i'm saying that argument But the thing cm punk I kinda knows That when it started getting off that people started paying attention. And i think the reason people started paying and you can you know what you think I think the reason why. I think that's happening is because you look now. Most of the shows on tv right now a reality show. They're hitting pretty big because people like drama people like to feel that they're seeing something that's real and seeing punk think touched on something and if you notice Every time somebody does. And i know not. Every risk can do that but every time somebody does that. Sparks interest sparks more More feeling people begin to the story a little bit better and even stone cold has said on several occasions. If you let a wrestler be themselves most of the time they get across a lot better now. i know me. Man's afraid to let that happen a lot. But i'm just wondering what you think about letting a lot of wrestlers Liguori feeling like say if the if gail campus was able to Us vocal is what she was feeling being frustrated do. They would've made more believable story. Land in future with other storylines restaurants. Do you think that would make them more. Believable storyline and they will people to get more into it Jason what do you think you don't wanna do. Gale came situation is give this. You know set president you will give the squeaky wheel degrees. Because and what's gonna stop somebody who's really doesn't have anything to be pissed off about from acting like they are and hopes that it's going to lead to some kind of story line push I think went austin talks about leading. And it's not just steve but a lot of people have you know when you let people be more play themselves more an extension of their real personality. It's not necessarily an endorsement of working in real life. Drama from behind the scenes ended the story line. It's more of a personality thing. And i think it's true in a lot of cases but i also know some wrestlers that i can't even imagine if they were just playing themselves on tv it would not make for good television. I'll put it that way. Yeah and i don't. I don't think every great star needs to play amplified version of himself. I think there are many who benefit from being something different than themselves I really think it's a case by case basis. I i think That steve austin played an amplified version of who grew into as a person but he wasn't character you know in workload wrestling. He hasn't lifted up. He had been through enough. He wasn't mature enough And not not that. He was immature. But in the other definition of mature he just had seen enough life to really be stone. Cold steve austin and also the right character for the right moment at that time with vincent man as his opposition. And the double turn with bread. And the fans bonding with. But you know. Jim hellwig benefited from being. Well i guess he kind of himself to and you know i mean you know way some you know a lot of the top stars are i mean if you really go through the list. Bret hart was bred. Heart heartbreak shawn. Michaels was heartbreaking on michael's bruno's albertino bruno summer tino hulk hogan was terry lay amplified. Little superhero added. Obviously worry put on the face paint. But i mean in general. I think this is what what i would say to that. And it's approaching it from a different angle. Fans consents authenticity. And if you are going to get to the level of john stone cold hogan bret hart shawn michaels bruno. Martino vern gone. You're rick flair. Whatever you need to people need to sense that that is who you are at some level at some level. And i think one of the issues with sting is fans never see sting was a star and paid like a top star in wwf tna but he never really drew. he wasn't a difference maker at that level. And i think part of it is people did really get a sense that seaboard and was that engaged in what he was doing. It was enact. He pretended to be staying but sting. Didn't really stand for anything i would. I would say when he got over was when he was a guy in his early twenties and the nwea. When he first started having these matches with ric flair and cutting those ringside promos. And i would compare it to kevin garnett as a rookie and a sophomore and the timber wolves. Because i grew up. I i watched him grow up as a timber wolf and there was this this this energy. This useful uninhibited energy. That sting had as a young character that worked in clicked and fans bonded with but asking got older. I think his character. And i don't think he grew as a character and i think that's somewhat limited him and that's why he was most effective when he said nothing and completely changed his gimmick and sat in the rafters wrestle. You know i mean that's when he was most affected so it's not to rip on staying. But i think that was part of what maybe you're getting. Steve is something to really get to that. Level of being a megastar iconic draw a true draw not chosen one who gets pushed to the top. It doesn't draw but a true draw. I think fans sense that offense and you have to look for that and find it. And that is i think what does i think he looks for that. And when he finds it in someone that can often be what causes him to give them a push to the top and a lot of people who have a lot of pieces of that puzzle. But don't quite have that authentic core that he knows what to do with they can kinda lost in the mix. Anyway i see the lot we have any. Follow up Yeah we're actually just one more question. are common. But it's about the thing with the me. I've talked about this before but the thing about with john and ray mysterious. I really had a real problem with that with that when he took the bill from From right now he's supposed to be this good guy. Is you know this baby face. And he talked about what they'll real did but then he turns around on the same night knowing. That ray is hurt instead of saying. Hey let's take the you know. Do this the following week out. He takes it from rates that very night. And i thought that was very healing. And very to two-faced. So i mean. I know i know you talked about this before but Any additional comments. You'd think about that. You know. I mean that's a good point The thing is they tried to cover that by may and i think they were aware of of that criticism being balanced. Steve and i think what they did on that show and chasing. You might remember better than i do. But they said something like they. They gave her a mysterious all the option of working. Not and he insisted yes he wanted to be funny. Champion he defended. It wasn't a great explanation. But i think they were aware it made me look bad and they tried to make it so mike ray had a chance to get out of the match but he said he was okay. He was ready to go any wanted to defend the title. And it's.

Hard power play was good. They haven't had a lot of success this season, but they've got some talented players. It starts on that face off. J Air Force lost that face off clean. They get it back to the point and then just down to the goal line, right wide open on the back door. Good. Look at that shot by John Stone. And when you leave a player like Johnstone open on the back door, not controlling his stick. This sticks right on the ice. All he had to do was get it in and angle it the right way.

He gets help from Horn made Horn has it in the corner, trying to get it out front for Noten, who was standing on the doorstep with pioneers wouldn't have that it all out to the point Robinson a shot that too, with a little bit of traffic kick to start aside and then from behind the net, centered from there that was broken up was well less than a minute to go in period number one. Puck is in the corner to the left of Josh Benson. He watches the action. Now it swings around to the other side. Lombardi gets to it for the pioneers. He backs it out to center. Eyes and coming in is John Stone, one on one with Robinson, who sizes him up defensively and got just enough of a piece of that shot that it went up in out of playing Robinson, a freshman and nice job against one of the better offensive players in Atlantic hockey. Good look right there, and Mark Johnstone and He's had a tremendous career, a senior left winger and a captain for the sacred heart team. That's not what Air Force wants. You don't want that guy coming down the middle of the ice on his forehand Good job by Robinson to stay in front of him. Johnstone is handsome good games through the years against the Falcons as well. Now the face off and the pucks out to the neutral zone in the final 20 off period number one. There's 11. Rims it around. It's going to be picked up far side by the Falcons.

They just played two games here on Sunday and Monday and because it is a makeup game, a game made up that was supposed to be played in Colorado Springs surround a month ago. Air Force is the home team today. They're the home team facing Sacred heart ending goal tonight for the pioneers Junior Josh Josh Benson. 6 £190, or a record of one and two on the season goals against average 3.8 sixes Saves percentage is 86% Zach LaRock between the pipes for Air Force the senior out of our Vata, Colorado, Iraq. Have one game against sacred heart in his career. He had 5 16 saves, gave up five goals in that game, the puck down at center ice and we are underway. Sacred Heart wins the opening tap and puts one on net from center rise gloved out of the air. Bilirakis don't think that was ticketed for anywhere near the net, but Zach just reached out over his head. And pulled it down, sets up a face off in the air Force end to our left. Over in the far circle. 11 seconds in and sacred how to win the draw enough to draw They get a shot away. Never got in on Iraq and get some bodies on the way in. And then that's wack and hacking out front of Iraq and the puck somehow squirted out of a mini scrum there, Right? Exact who covered it up? We're just 16 seconds in, but secret heart wins that face off right back to the right point. And throws it on that we were curious to see how these teams would come out playing this earlier game. You've really got to get your body clock right to be ready to go at that three or five start times, their sacred heart wins another face off and another shot that's knocked away Outfront by Jake 11. Then 11 retrieves in the corner feeds to note new sense it into the sacred art end and the pioneers touched the puck for the first time in their end. Of the ice. It's on the stick of John Stone right now, as he skates away from the four check provided by air Force is Sean Noten all the way back behind his own net. Don't move it. 200 ft Here, going right to left the red and white sacred heart Pioneers chip into the air Force and where Running cooked, pulls it down for air Force cookie comes in backhands it into the sacred art in trying to get to it is Norland cut off in the corner, and now we got four players in the corner digging at that punk pioneers come away with it. Their rush is partially snuffed out at center ice by defensive pressure from Robinson. The puck got past him, though, and it's gonna be skated down behind the air force in it by the Falcons. Is there force on the breakout at center ice. They get it up to bribe bribe pushes it to Gaskins, who lost the park along the wall chip back to the neutral zone. Grab there by air Force. That's Alex Maynard. Maynard from his own blue line. Two candles through center ice goes around a couple of defenders. He's got a little space takes the shot blocked it into up on the back wall. Over here in the corner to the left of the goaltender Josh Benson. Air Force winds that stick battle Harper comes away with. It runs into a couple of defensive players, though, and it'll be taken away by sacred heart. Jared comes away with it. Pitched into the air force and from the wrong side of the red line, and that's a nice and calm. No score in this game. Almost two minutes in the Air Force line chart is the exact same as it was Monday. And why not? The Falcons played. Maybe they're most complete game on Monday had a season high 42 shots on goal in that game, so same pairing same combinations as the last game face off. In the sacred heart. And to the right of Benson end to take this draw will be Jake Marty. In the circle. Other side of the ice stick side of Benson, the goaltender. It's like John Stone, the captain. I'm sorry. That's my Jerrod junior out of Georgia who will take the face off for sacred heart. Air Force will win the drive. They get into the blue line and a slap shot from there by Maynard blocked on the way in it pops straight up into the air came down in front of the net that swept out of harm's way by the pioneers back to center ice, where the Falcons get another takeaway and air force in that time a little too quickly. I think that was broad. That was actually Marty, who was outside on the play. Well, this sacred heart team won 21 games last season. They lost some key guys from last year. The player of the year, the defenseman of the year. Their top five scores are all gone from that team last season. Really, what a challenge for the Atlantic Hockey Championship had there didn't want me chasing Cotton was the player of the year Austin Michael Murray was the leading scorer and Mike Lee was the defensive player of the year. The map. They didn't lose much. A soft one by Air Force falcons. Bring it in, but deep take away by sacred heart. And here come the pioneers let out by Josh Alan Alan brings it in, dumps it in behind the air Force net. Cook gets to it first there for the Falcons and a quick break out here, no open up the right side games the blue line and dumps it in behind the net. Goes in after it blooms around to the other side. Gaskets has it. They're from the wall gaskets arrester knocked away by Benson that it out to center rise and the Falcons trying to pick it up.

President Trump Commutes Prison Sentence of Long-Time Ally Roger Stone
"You, President Trump has commuted the sentence of longtime political ally Roger Stone. The extraordinary intervention came just days before Stone was set to begin serving a 40 month prison sentence for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign. I went deeper with Paul Brandis of West Wing reports. First of all, John Stone remains a convicted felon. A commutation means he's not going to jail. But the conviction stands now. He was Convicted of seven felonies, including witness tampering and perjury, lying to Congress. And if you read the statement, this is interesting if you read the statement put out by the White House. Last night, another one of these Friday night news dumps. Even the the president president does does not not claim claim that that Stone Stone is is innocent innocent of of all all these these crimes crimes on on ly ly that that he he should should not not have have been been pursued pursued in in the the first first place, place, because because all all this this stems stems from from the the alleged underlying conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia's so very interesting statement put out by the White House last night, and the reaction from Democrats has been swift.
