[Selections from Five Day Bicycle Race]

This video contains an hour-long edit of footage shot for “Five Day Bicycle Race,” a project comprised of live in-studio commentary and taped edited coverage of the 1976 Democratic National Convention in New York City. Produced by independent videomakers calling themselves The Image Union (including many members of TVTV and Videofreex), it aired on Manhattan Cable for three hours per night for five days during the convention. This video chronicles the events in and around the convention, and includes interviews with various delegates, politicians, members of the media, and people connected to Jimmy Carter, including wife Rosalynn Carter and son Jeff Carter. It also includes footage from the convention floor and demonstrators outside the convention, led by Ron Kovic.
