Tuesday TV: A Field of ‘Woodstock’ Fans

Woodstock-three-days-that-defined-a-generation.webWoodstock’s 50th anniversary next week won’t be marked with a big anniversary concert (which fell through), but it does have a film celebrating its achievements. While the classic 1970 film focused on the often spectacular music from the makeshift stage, Barak Goodman’s “Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation” turns the camera around to focus on the crowds who came, as well as the townspeople who dealt with the surprising influx of 400,000 for a weekend – first with fear and apprehension and finally with compassion and neighborliness. It makes the case for a community — and a mindset — forming for a generation. It premieres tonight on “American Experience” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings). Here’s a story I wrote about it for TV Worth Watching.

In the new reality series “Undercover Billionaire” (Discovery, 10 p.m.), businessman Glenn Sterns travels to Erie, Pa., with $100 in his pocket, aiming to start a million dollar business in 90 days. It involves some sleeping in a car, and a few favors from locals willing to help out. Sterns has done the reality turn before — in the “Survivor” like series cast like an old sitcom, “The Real Gilligan’s Island,” he played Thurston Howell (and won the season).
