Marlon Riggs brings his landmark study of prejudice and perception begun in Ethnic Notions into the Television Age and looks at over forty years of race relations through the lens of prime time entertainment with an analysis of the portrayal of African-Americans on American television from 1948-1988. He argues that earlier images were outright racist, and that later images have been overly biased towards prosperous blacks. This Peabody Award winning documentary revisits popular prime time television shows such as Beulah, The Nat King Cole Show, Julia, I Spy, Good Times and Roots. Actors Esther Rolle, Diahann Carroll and Tim Reid along with Hollywood producers Norman Lear, Steven Bochco and David Wolper reveal how bitter racial conflict was absorbed by the non-controversial format of the prime time series
