Description

"Sesame Street" is the longest-running-and arguably most beloved- children's television program ever created. Today, it reaches some six million preschoolers weekly in the United States and countless others in 140 countries around the world. "Street Gang" is the compelling, comical, and inspiring story of a media masterpiece and pop- culture landmark. Television reporter and columnist Michael Davis - with the complete participation of Joan Ganz Cooney, one of the show's founders-unveils the idealistic personalities, decades of social and cultural change, stories of compassion and personal sacrifice, and miraculous efforts of writers, producers, directors, and puppeteers that together transformed an empty soundstage into the most recognisable block of real estate in television history.
