Director Barak Goodman joins us to discuss his two new companion documentaries for PBS American Experience that explore the rise of the radical right, “Oklahoma City” and “Ruby Ridge.” The films illustrate how a series of deadly encounters between American citizens and federal law enforcement, including the standoffs at Ruby Ridge and Waco, led to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in April 1995, the worst act of domestic terrorism in American history.

 "Oklahoma City" airs on Tuesday, February 7th, from 9:00-11:00pm EST. For more information, click here
