Tom Brokaw and cable's The History Channel are teaming up for a special on the seminal year 1968. According to Variety, the show will be titled 1968 with Tom Brokaw.

Brokaw will be taking us on a journey through that turbulent time in American History with first hand accounts from the people that lived through it. The NBC news anchor will also be offering his own reflections on the year.

Events that took place in 1968 include the riots at the Democratic Convention in Chicago, the launch of the lunar spacecraft Apollo 8 and the assassinations of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy.

The special will air this fall, and it will be timed to coincide with the release of Brokaw's book Boom! Personal Reflections on the Sixties and Today.
