According to a Los Angeles Herald-Examiner TV Weekly article published the week of June 6-12, 1976, the two-part, two-night series aired on various CBS affiliates April 1 and 2, 1976. Due to the subject matter, some markets either preempted showing the film altogether or delayed airing the film into the late night time slots of 11:30 PM.
In the case of Los Angeles CBS owned-and-operated KNXT-TV (now KCBS-TV), "Helter Skelter" aired June 10 and 11, 1976. The reason given for the delay was Vincent Bugliosi, author of the book and the prosecuting attorney in the Tate-LaBianca murder trial, was running for office as Los Angeles County District Attorney. Due to the 1975 death of Joseph P. Busch Jr., a special election was held on June 8, 1976. Bugliosi lost the race to incumbent interim District Attorney John Van de Kamp. See more »

This movie tells the story of the Tate-LaBianca murders in Los Angeles in August 1969 of 7 people by Charles Manson and his "family".Sharon Tate and 6 other people were horribly slaughtered in two nights of senseless killing by Manson and some of his devotees.Much of the movie deals with the prosecutor,Vincent Bugliosi,and his courtroom quest to convict the heartless butchers.Bugliosi also wrote the definitive book about the killings that you should also be sure to read.It will scare you like no work of fiction ever could.
Steve Railsback plays Manson,no,Railsback BECOMES Manson in this film.Railsback is perfect in every way in his portrayal of Manson.He has the voice and mannerisms down and it would be hard for a casual viewer to tell the difference between clips of Manson and Railsback,he is that good.Marylin Burns plays Linda Kasabian,one of the family members.But she will forever be best known for playing screaming Sally Hardesty in the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre".
Being a TV movie of course the gore is pretty tame but even without the graphic gore this movie still makes the horror and awfulness of these murders crystal clear.Railsback shows you the inside of Manson's mind and that is a twisted nasty grubby little thing.Despite attempts by some rock bands and others to make Manson seem cool he is nothing but a runty little sadistic loser who continues to show no remorse to this day.He will end his senseless little life locked up like the slobbering animal he is.
This movie is even better than other later movies made for theater release.It is pretty much faithful to Bugliosi's book and trial transcripts and gives you the best film account of the murders that set Los Angeles and the nation on edge and ended the 1960's with a big bloody
