TV: Best of Enemies

Best of Enemies, the Oscar-nominated documentary, premieres nationally October 3 on PBS. Buckley vs. Vidal: The Historic 1968 ABC News Debates, a published transcript of the debates, includes an introduction by Robert Gordon, the film's director.

"The takeaway from these debates has spawned a bastard progeny of vacuity," Gordon writes in the intro. "But what is delicious is not the shouting that came near the culmination of the Buckley-Vidal debates, but the stroll down the path that led to it."
