On Thursday, January 11, 1973, the first broadcast of An American Family changed television history forever. A 12-hour documentary series on PBS, An American Family chronicled seven months in the day-to-day lives of the William C. Loud family of Santa Barbara, California. An audience of ten million viewers watched in fascination the unfolding real-life drama of Bill and Pat Loud, and their five children, Lance, Kevin, Grant, Delilah and Michele.
The series challenged conventional views of middle class American family life with its depiction of marital tensions that led to divorce, an elder son's gay lifestyle and the changing values of American families. Prior to An American Family, the staples of television family programs such as The Brady Bunch profiled a model of the perfectly happy family that seldom faced any crisis. The broadcast of An American Family in 1973 proved to be a groundbreaking watershed that forever changed American television programming

THE 2 BONUS SHOWS EACH APPROX 1 HOUR LONG.

1. 1983 AN AMERICAN FAMILY REVISITED
2. 2001 LANCE LOUD A DEATH IN AN AMERICAN FAMILY

On December 22, 2001, at age 50, Loud died of liver failure caused by a hepatitis C and HIV co-infection. Several months before his death, Loud asked Alan and Susan Raymond, the Academy Award-winning filmmakers of the original An American Family series, to film a final episode in the Loud story. The Raymonds had remained friends with the Loud family after the 1973 series and a 1983 follow-up, American Family Revisited. The Raymonds' new film, Lance Loud! A Death In An American Family, both commemorates the 30th anniversary of the original series broadcast and explores Loud's legacy by looking back at scenes from the original documentary, examining the intervening years of Loud's life and spending time with him in his final months. WETA and the Independent Television Service are presenting this film memoir to public television.

The Loud family, according to the Raymonds, "had shunned all public attention in recent years and did not readily welcome returning to television." As a last request, Lance Loud asked and convinced everyone with the exception of his younger brother Grant to participate willingly and lovingly in the making of this final chapter, demonstrating the strength and unity of his family in standing by him.

According to the filmmakers, Loud often spoke of not wanting to be perceived as a gay icon and a publicly homosexual figure, but rather as simply "an outsider, a rebel, someone always living on society's edge." Near the end of his life he wrote, "Make no mistake. This is not to emphasize the sadness of my demise but rather emphasize the love of my family and friends. When my time comes up, I want to be filmed because life this past year has taught me so much. I also stand as a role model as to what not to do in one's life
