10.1 Carol Burnett: A Woman of Character America in the 1960s and 70s was in turmoil. The civil rights struggle, the war in Vietnam and the sexual revolution defined a nation in conflict.

For 11 years, the wacky performer yelled like Tarzan and won our hearts with her edgy, always sympathetic, characters. Yet, as with so many brilliant comedians, hers was a difficult childhood. Burnett's difficult childhood is traced, and the dramatic turn that followed her TV variety show.
