Marion Stokes was secretly recording American television 24 hours a day for 30 years. It started in 1979 with the Iranian Hostage Crisis at the dawn of the 24r-hour news cycle. It ended on December 14, 2012, while the Sandy Hook massacre played on television as Marion passed away. In between, Marion recorded on 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, lies, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, and talk shows, showing how television shaped the world of today.
