Then and Now


Channel One News conducted its own survey of 1300 young adults in order to make a comprehensive comparison of two distinct generations — teens of 1969 and 2009.

Channel One also visited the University of Colorado at Boulder, posing questions to students exactly as CBS News had done on campus in 1969. At that time, the University of Colorado had been chosen for its diverse and nationally representative student body.

Find out how close, or far the generation gap is between teens from 1969 and today — then, tell us what you think about the differences we found.
