Actually, I think what we got from the program was an extremely simplified version of 'why Pete left the Weavers'. It isn't exactly the same story others have told for why Pete left (I believe for some time there was a 'creative differences' story that floated around too). I thought the program glossed over that, probably to keep it light and editorially to make the McCarthy hearings & the blacklisting more front and center. Which is fine.
