Most people remember the 2003 blackout , that sent NYC and much of the Northeast into darkness on a sultry August day. But it was nothing compared to the Blackout of 1977 during the frightening "Summer of Sam." On the 38th anniversary of the blackout, PBS will air a new American Experience feature , Blackout , with archival photographs and footage, plus interviews from those who lived through it; one recalls, "Buildings were burning. Cars were burning. Garbage in lots were burning."

The program takes you back into the bad, old days of the city, when New York teetering towards bankruptcy , unemployment was high, city employees were being laid off and the Son of Sam was a year and a half into his reign of terror. A thunderstorm on July 13, 1977 hit a power line in Westchester County and a cascade of problems occurred, as power demand surged on the other available lines. Con Ed ended up dumping customers off the grid to save the system—but the lights still went out.

Here's an exclusive clip from Blackout , which features Kevin Zraly , then wine director of Windows on the World, remember what he saw from the top of the World Trade Center, as NYC went dark around him during dinner service.
