Best bet on the Tube

 

Recommended viewing: a splendidly crafted documentary on the Dolphins’ 1972 team, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the perfect season ( 5 p.m., Wednesday, NFL Network). The 45-minute film frames the season within the context of what was happening then in South Florida. Hall of Famer Larry Little recalls going to a store in Miami, before segregation ended in the 1960s, and “sneaking to drink the water (served to white customers) to see if it was different from the water (served to blacks). It was colder.” Viewers hear amusing anecdotes from former players and reflections from a broad spectrum of people. – Miami Herald
