More About This episode

Was she a victim of thought-control by terrorists or a millionaire turned revolutionary? The kidnapping of Patty Hearst by a leftist guerilla group that called itself the Symbionese Liberation Army made front-page national news in 1974. But over the months, the drama and the media attention deepened as Hearst turned from a teenage American heiress to a machine gun-toting fugitive named "Tania." The Lost Tapes places you at the heart of this astonishing story, presented solely through newscasts and rarely seen footage of the day.
