Synopsis

Mr Bugliosi and Mr. Gentry discuss, "Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders,". Bugliosi was the prosecutor in the case against the Manson "family" for the murders of Sharon Tate and others. The interview opens with "Home is where you are happy" performed by Charles Manson and an excerpt of Catherine Shur Manson's sister talking about her brother. They speak in depth on the Manson "family" and the key players in the murders; Susan Atkins, Steve Grogan, Linda Kasabian, Patricia Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten and Charles Watson. Studs brings the interview to a close by reading an excerpt from the book, a quote of Charles Manson's speech after being convicted.
