As any hip hop fan knows, The Beastie Boys were there from the early days: New York white boys skipping from punk to the new sound, running with Run DMC, opening for Madonna on her Virgin Tour. And then they were huge, creative, anarchic, out of the box with Sabotage, Intergalactic, Fight For Your Right to Party. Adam Yauch was there from the beginning, a force with a bass guitar, and often a video camera, in hand. Now he's shooting kids who shoot hoops and go to the NBA. This hour On Point: Beastie Boy Adam Yauch and his new film "Gunnin for That #1 Spot."

This program aired on July 17, 2008.
