Torture. As disturbing as the subject is, it's even more disturbing to hear someone advocate it. Especially as eloquent a spokesperson as Tz'u-hsi (played by Beulah Quo), the late 19th-century Dowager Empress of China. But she's not alone - she's in a room with Frederick Douglass (Roscoe Lee Browne), who suffered unspeakable tortures in the years before the American Civil War, Marchese di Bonesana Cesare Beccaria (Robert Carricart), whose writings did much to discredit torture as official punishment, and the Marquis de Sade (Stefan Gierasch), whose views of torture are, literally, sadistic. Host Steve Allen plays umpire for a freewheeling discussion in this fourth volume of the great PBS television series.
