I imported some old star trek tv shows, which were aired in 1969. These will not preview, and will not play, until the year is made 1970 or later in the database.

You may need to check user and group ownership on your frontend and backend for quicker previews.

We need more information. Which column/table is the bad date in? There are several columns which hold dates and without being specific it's hard to know what needs fixing or if it's even a real bug.
