Introduction: A Moment in Time, 1968: A special series on the 40th anniversary of a year of upheaval, in a world seemingly out of control.

Content: In 1968 France was still led by Charles de Gaulle. He was 79 years old, had saved the nation twice, once during World War II as head of the Free French Army and then rode to the rescue during the Algerian crisis in the 1950s. He was still around. Many of the young saw him as old-fashioned, past his prime - an aging autocrat who needed to move on.
