    The son of a newspaper editor joins the Hare Krishna movement in 1978.

    At the time there was huge propaganda against the Hare Krishna movement, claiming it was brainwashing, and parents of devotees had started hiring "deprogrammers" who would kidnap their sons and daughters and try to get them to denounce the cult.

    Lou Grant was an American drama television series starring Ed Asner as a newspaper editor.

    It aired on CBS from 1977 to 1982.

    It was a very popular television program, watched by almost everyone at the time.

    This edition, broadcast on February 6, 1978, just months after Srila Prabhupada disappeared from our material vision, is a very fair and balanced presentation of the situation at the time.

    Charlie's son Tommie joins the New Dwarka Temple [Los Angeles], and Charlie does not take it well.

    We see Lou and Charlie attending the Sunday Feast and at the fest they meet a man who has successfully got his daughter deprogrammed from Krishna consciousness.

    So after investigating deprogramming Charlie hires the deprogrammers to get Tommie out of the Hare Krishna movement...

    It is very well done, a little slow starting, first 5-10 minutes setting the scene, so please make the effort and watch the whole show.
